While Archer's* puppy raisers were out of town I made sure he was with me everywhere and did everything that I did (he didn't do everything I did but he did go everywhere with me).
During the week I found that a friend of mine was having some troubles with her twins. They were scared to the dickens (not sure what that really means but they were freaked out) by dogs. They'd scream and melt down when they would be in close proximity.
I had a thought and it involved a trip to the ice cream store (a huge big deal for me) but it was neutral ground for the twins.
Needless to say Archer was the perfect dog for the job.
*Archer is a Paws & Effect service dog
