But don’t let my name fool you. In real life, I’m very big. -Little John (Robin Hood : Men in Tights, 1993)
The Mighty Micron was the second pup we raised for Canine Companions for Independence. He’s also the fella that got me involved in this blogging thing. Ridiculously photogenic and with a character just one degree off the normal scale, there is just too much Micron happening here to keep this dog to myself.
Micron is a Lab/Golden cross; about three quarters Golden Retriever. He has that wonderful people-pleasin’ velcro personality that you see with Goldens. A beautiful and good-natured guy.
We sent him off to dog college at CCI in May 2011. But after three months of advanced training, it was determined that, while he can brag on having an amazing personality, he is not truly suited to be an assistance dog.
So, Micron is now a Change of Career dog. CCI allowed us to adopt Micron as our beloved pet.
We are blessed.
In May 2012, Micron and I graduated from Miami Valley Pet Therapy Association as a pet therapy team. We volunteer with Hospice of Dayton and other facilities around the Greater Miami Valley.
