That tiny trainer (note he is holding a clicker!) is Hal. He is with two Sparklers — Abbie (his canine sibling) and Zimmer, who lives with his grandparents, Kathy and Jack.
Kathy reports that Hal, who is just 15 months, is a champion talker and has given Zimmer a new name: Zimmie, Zimmie Zoo. How cute is that??!
Grandparent and dog support were needed because Hal’s mom, Ashlee, just had surgery for acute appendicitis. YIKES. Good wishes to Ashlee on a speedy and uneventful recovery.
