Thanks for stopping by, little girl. We miss you.
Stitch “filled in.” She wasn’t exceptionally good at anything in particular, but she always put on a good show! She filled the Service Dog gap between Scuba and Syn. She wasn’t fabulous as a SD, but she absolutely excelled at public access. She never stood out, she never got in the way. She could tuck herself into the smallest space and wait quietly forever between flights.
In draft work (carting), she was the anchor (and I mean that literally). No team could run off with her in wheel. In harness she looked like she was pulling her heart out, all the while taking a step and braking surreptitiously, each foot skidding half an inch before lifting for the next step, so the other dog wound up doing more work than if she’d been pulling alone.
She was a character.
