A lovely story of how a weakness turned into a strength. Despite meticulous, professional training from the day the puppy arrived, Ricochet just seemed to be a complete failure at his intended occupation…

“[Ricochet] was truly a puppy prodigy, but as she grew, so did her instinct for chasing birds, which could be a risk for a person with a disability. I tried for months to ‘make’ her something she wasn’t, but finally had to release her from the program. I was very disappointed, but rather than focus on what she couldn’t do, I focused on what she could do…”

(thanks again, Katie)
