Beach day! / Día de Playa

It has been a stressful week full of hospital duties. I had another 24 hour shift on Thursday and came straight to bed on Friday morning. Slept all throughout the day. On Saturday morning, hubby and I decided to leave the house for nice and quiet beach day nearby. We took our amazing dog Brandy for her first beach outing. Oh, how wonderful it is to see her enjoy herself in the ocean! We were astonished of her instincts and her behavior. We still used her training skills in our advantage having other people around and her new Service Dog vest so she could be identified as a working dog. Hubby is getting used to the idea of having her all the time in control. Hubby had a great day without getting “Happy feet“. Here are a few pictures! (After the Spanish version😉 )

PS. As this week on Thursday is officially PD Worldwide Day, I’ll try to blog more as a special feature for our new achievements for Parkinson Puerto Rico, INC., our Non-profit Cooporation. We have a few surprises for the week! See http://www.parkinsonpr.com for more information in Spanish.

Ha sido una semana llena de mucho estrés debido a cosas del hospital. Tuve otra guardia de 24 horas el jueves y tan pronto llegué a casa el viernes en la mañana, me recosté a descansar durmiendo prácticamente todo el día. El sábado en la mañana, mi esposo y yo decidimos irnos de playa cerca de nuestro hogar. Nos llevamos a nuestra Brandy de paseo. ¡Su primera vez en la playa! Es super emocionante verla disfrutar tanto. Estábamos muy impresionados con sus instintos y su buen comportamiento. Siempre usamos sus entrenamientos para corregirla y mantenerla cerca debido a que teníamos muchas personas a nuestro alrededor. Mi esposo se mantuvo en control de ella, logrando así poder estar en un lugar abierto y que ella cooperara como debe ser. Para evitar complicaciones, le pusimos por primera vez su chaleco de perro de Servicio para identificarla. Mi esposo tuvo un buen día sin llegar a estar “Happy feet“.  Abajo pondré fotos.

PS. Como este jueves se celebra el día Mundial del Parkinson, trataré de escribir lo nuevo que tenemos con nuestra Coorporación sin fines de lucro. Tendremos varias sorpresas para esta semana. (Ver www.parkinsonpr.com para información sobre nuestra coorporación.)

    • She is still is a Service Dog in training. Her most recent achievement was getting his med bottles from my hand and taking it to him. It amazes me every single day. Still has a lot to learn, but surprisingly enough, she learns fast. Fully recommend a service dog to who can have one.
