what do 7 week old pups do ? they sleep , "they" sleep for the majority of the day .
But now that 7-week-old Malachi has arrived in their Pawcatuck home, the Hudsons likely will be sleeping through the night. ------------- (so will the pup)
The fox red retriever has been trained by a Virginia company to be a diabetic alert dog -------------(not WILL be trained -- has been trained)
at 7 weeks the dog is barely old enough to leave it's first home , not quite old enough to do a temperament test that is reliable . So what if I said a 7 week old pup was a bomb dog . Isn't that irresponsible to make such a claim when a life , or lives are at stake?
Here's your indication "The dog then repeatedly lifts its paw or touches its nose to a person's leg" and "the dog still should be able to detect whether Christian is having a problem at the school a half-mile away, and react accordingly." So every time the dog touches mom or dad at home because he can't possibly tell young Christian , the school is going to have an anxious parent descend on the school - false alarms all over the place. Escalates concern not alleviating concerns. Pup touches leg of mom to beg a biscuit , (normal pup behaviour), mom jumps to car and speeds to school . --- oh no , wait , in another week or two pup might be able to "Others have been trained to call 911 if no one is available to help."
brrrring , brrring, -- what is your emergency ? awruff, wowow ruff , -- stay on the line sir, we're sending someone now. It is so blazing hot I am giddy .
so they got the pup from a ", a nonprofit organization " --
from the philanthropic arm Warren Retrievers Nationwide Breeder of Quality Labrador Puppies in Virginia
- which means for the good of the people , (no charge implied) , charitable
A friend who works for Connecticut Special Wishes put in a request and the organization donated $5,000 towards the purchase and training of the dog. The Hudson's continue to hold local fundraisers to obtain the rest of the money
------but the dog was bought for $5,000 , a 7 week old pup for $5,000 ??? and it seems like there are more costs involved because the Special Wishes well meaners continue to hold fundraisers to raise the REST of the money.
I smell something ..
