Problems problems problems

With the possibility of me finishing work soon due to my continuing and increasing reaction to Actichlor Plus and the spreading use of the stuff throughout the hospital, I was looking at volunteering myself and Rassilon as hospital visitors.

But, an an Australian politician once said, “Life wasn’t meant to be easy”. (The only political promise they ever kept).

To get Rassilon visiting privileges he needs a “Trained Dog Certificate”. To get that he needs to pass grade 4 of training, which involves ‘off leash work’. BUT…South Australian law says greyhounds are not allowed off their leash in public, so this is a problem we need to get around.

I think Rassilon would be great for hospital and nursing home visits, but there seems to be certain companies that are taking control and making money out of training the dogs, then charging companies and schools for visits.

This is the ONLY volunteering I would consider (because I get to show Rassilon off), but if it is going to cost me moneyforget it!!

Kilroy’s owners were interested in the R.E.A.D. program in America. Check out the site for more information.
