Time for correction

Karina on couch

Every once in a while, we all need to be corrected, right? As well behaved as Karina has been, the trainers at Canine Companions told us early on that she was food-driven. At the time, I thought to myself, “Well, aren’t we all? I…

Friday Fun: Karina assists in therapy

J.P. hugs Karina

Hi everyone, it’s Karina. My facilitator, Jeff, told me he’s been getting many questions about how things are going as I’ve settled into life with the Cousins family. I thought I would try to fill people in on how a Canine Companion goes about…

Karina gets clean

Karina gets clean

It was a big week for J.P. and Karina as we passed the one-month mark after graduating from Canine Companions for Independence. One month later meant Karina got her first bath, and we had to file our first report with CCI. The report asked…

Enjoying the everyday

Karina's collar and tag

After more than a month of chaos, even doing household chores seems relaxing. It’s really nice to be settling into our new normal in the Cousins’ household. Over the past few days, there’s been an effort to get things cleaned up inside and outside…

The dog days of summer have arrived a bit early in Central Florida with temperatures climbing into the mid-90s just in time for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Paige managed to get Karina in J.P.’s bed with him after he awoke, and he was…

Friday Fun: Start your engines

Patient with car

It’s the beginning of the Memorial Day holiday weekend, and from the looks of Interstate 4, many people are already heading out of town. For me, it will be three days of work after taking off so much time for Canine Companions for Independence…

Shaking off the cobwebs

Snoozing dog

I was thankful J.P. got a good night’s sleep. It was nice to wake up feeling refreshed Thursday, and I’ve noticed that since J.P. has been home from the hospital, Karina doesn’t whine in her crate before I’m ready to wake up. However, I…
