My friend Ackman
'I think I'm supposed to have boots on to climb up here'
One of the last outings I took Truffie on was out to volunteer at the Youth Hostel and then to walk the 3rd street promenade. While shopping at REI a kid asks if he can pet Truffle, I usually say 'you have to ask your parents' and then leave before they can come back. But he was quick and I was slow, we start talking and he says his brother has a service dog so off we go to meet his family and their dog. Ackman is a Autism service dog, his boy likes to wander away and he is trained to find him! Very cool. I got the feeling that while the dog is supposed to help the boy, it is really the parents who do the handling.
It was nice to see another working dog. I can only hope that the next working dog I meet will be Miss Truffie.
