Sponsor Luna: The chilled, happy, fuzzy bear
Luna is such a playful puppy! When we asked her Volunteer Puppy Trainer Debbie what she adores about Luna, she told us: “She loves playing. We have another hearing dog in training living with us, called Josie, and Luna always wants to play with her. They’re best buddies, and it’s wonderful to watch.”
Lovely Luna is a lucky pup, having a ‘big sister’ in Josie. It means she can watch what Josie does and follow suit – and have a great start to her training journey. This journey will end with her helping a deaf person to leave loneliness behind and reconnect with family, friends, the community around them… with life.
What else does Debbie love about Luna? “When settling for a sleep she changes location several times before settling in ‘the spot’ – which may well be the place she started in! From the hearth, to under the coffee table, to Josie’s bed, to under the curtain, to back to the hearth! Once she’s asleep though, that’s it.”
Definitely, that’s it. We all know what puppy snoozes are like. Their little sides go in and out, in and out, and they occasionally emit puppy snuffles. It’s so cute!
So, Luna’s a happy girl, loved by everyone (and every dog!) around her. She’s also a chilled soul, with plenty of spaces and places for snoozes and snuffles. Given that Debbie calls her a ‘fuzzy bear’, that makes Luna a chilled, happy, fuzzy bear!
Training progress: Look and learn
Luna is a very quick learner, and this could be partly down to Josie’s influence. “Luna already is picking up ‘sits’ and ‘downs’,” Debbie tells us. “This is because, whenever I am training Josie, Luna is going through the motions too.” So with Debbie’s help – and Josie’s too, it would seem – little Luna will one day become an amazing hearing dog.
What else will Josie teach Luna? How will Luna’s bright character show in her training? Will she ever stop shifting sleeping positions several times? And who will be her eventual deaf partner? Sponsor Luna today and find out!
