|Near the end of the visit Vivian opened her eyes for us!|
|Coach is lying next to me and Lydia is petting his body.|
When we came back for coffee, Lydia decided she could chance a pet or two with Coach. One of the things that Coach does like to do is lick you, so if Lydia managed to get her face close to his, he would give her a big lick on the face which made her jump back. I would immediately tell Coach in a stern voice, "No kisses." Lydia would also look at Coach and as she got near him she would say, "No kisses!"

He got lots of praise because he was calm and just let her pet him. She was able to pet him on his paw and on his body. And he even got a pat on the head. She still made sure she told him no kisses though. Just in case. I really am amazed at his calm demeanor. He was still and calm and waited for her to come to him. There was no lunging or jumping.
