She's a Text Santa pup - which means her name was chosen by the audience of an ITV telethon (!) I wonder if they will get them together for a photoshoot?
We train her and walk her in many places like shops, garden centres, shopping centres, cafes restaurants - anywhere other dogs are not allowed. She meets other dogs at Guide Dog puppy classes, her first one was at 8 weeks old. Full on traffic duties start at 17 weeks, but I already spend a lot of time sitting at bus stops and train platforms with her on my knee watching. My biceps are getting strong
