I have reached a milestone moment in my life. On Sunday the 16th of May I attended the RSPCA's Million Paws Walk held at Sydney Olympic Park at Homebush. We were never sure we would actually be able to attend right up to the day, but we decided to jump in the deep end and go!

Deb Fratantaro made this dream possible by organizing some socialization training for me through Les Trewer and DogTech. Weeks of classes before hand helped me to calm down in the presence of other dogs. While my fear of other dogs wasn't completely diminished, with Mum and Dad with me every step of the way and my trainer Les by my side with his doberman Sassy I accomplished what most thought I could never do. I participated in the walk!
