Today was our family interview with the wonderful place we will be adopting a Home Companion Dog from. It was about a two hour drive and we had to be there at 10 am so it was a very early morning. The girls did surprisingly well though.
The interview lasted about an hour and they asked Abby a lot of questions. It was cute watching her try to answer the more grown up questions. They explained the remainder of the process so we know what to expect. The hardest part is that from here it will take between 6 and 18 months to be matched with a dog. It will most likely be a lab (I wanted a poodle because of the less shedding but I was outvoted). Once we are matched they will call us, we'll set up a meeting where we will meet our dog and have a training session to learn all of the commands.
It is very exciting to be getting a dog that will be well trained, will fit well in our family AND will be an amazing support for Abby. It's so cool.
So now we wait... which we're all very okay with. We're just excited to formally be on the list!
