Milo no longer carries kings collar around in his mouth. Which is a good thing a sign of feeling better. He has begun to perk up and act more usual , not so droopy. King was Milos role model hero leader dog , if you know what I mean. Altho blind old smaller with old age hips and progressive heart failure king was Milos dog boss. King had the attitude of authority. King was also daughters ( bluebell) retired service dog.


King as role model and I taught Milo to alert in advance telling bluebell of epilepsy . So that's what king as older service dog did. Milo is the 5th service dog . All but dog #1 learned from an older dog by role model method. This began when daughter was a just beginning to walk toddler. Now bluebell is 29 .


We have three cats who have begun to sleep together in kings kennel box on kings blanket. Sometimes Milo sleeps near the box while they do this. Earlicking friends together adjusting to loss and doing very well at it .

We two humans daughter and I are also doing well and it's a good thing too. This is all normal and good grief is good be glad we are felling better .
