This morning, Juno came as close as she ever will to being a service dog. (The screeners call her 'too exuberant').
There was an older woman on our trail walk earlier, and she said to us, "Sad days for me, Mondays. Happy dogs make bad days better days."
She asked if she could say hello to Juno and I said, "Of course".
When she was finished, she thanked me, thanked Juno, and said "Today, I am grateful. For you."
Wow. What an uplifting start to a Monday.
Thank you, kind lady.
It kind of reminded me of this:

Juno didn't even have to try. She just 'is'. And I'm thankful for it.
