Yesterday, was my first Sunday to present my testimony with Chimi. He did very well. I prepared him by getting him up real early and going through his whole morning food, hygiene, and obedience sessions. I also put a Halti head collar on him. I have tried several different forms of head collars. The Halti works best Chimi was trained with a Halti and he can not rub or paw his way out of it. Have him wear the halti has enabled my broken shoulder to heal without strain. It also calms him and keeps him more focused and it keeps other people from bothering our team work. The head collar is not a muzzle but I am glad the general public thinks it might be.
Getting on stage was a little difficult because the steps had open space between wher you could see through to the floor. Chimi stayed at the bottom until I was on stage and then he leap trotted to the top and everyone clap for him/ During my talk he laid quietly at my feet. He and I both were a little anxious during the time at the close of the service were people came to hug me and thank me for coming.During lunch afterward. He laid under the table in front of me and responded well to correction. He ignored the toddlers and children who snuck under the table or stepped on his tail and he did not lick anyone's sandal feet. He did sniff to much at a few people but over all he was very well behaved and I was very proud to have him at my side. After church, Chimi and I went for a golf cart ride with Suzy and we visited the Children's Worship Center.

Skit for My Testimony Introduction
I am giving my testimony at a church in my area. I wrote this skit as an introduction to my speech. This will be my first testimony with Chimi. I added his name to the skit.
What the Name?
Winky: Hi, I am glad you came to visit today can I help you?
Anne: Yes, can you tell me what is the Name?
Winky: My name is Hansel Ruben Wilson
Anne: Wow, that is an ancestral name if I ever heard one. But what is the Name?

Anne: Donna Suzanne Isbell. It’s a family name too. But what is the Name?
Winky: My nick name is Winky
Anne: Cute, That sounds like one of the Seven Dwarfs But with a name like Hansel Ruben Wilson, I would think a nickname would be a necessity.

Anne: I am called Anne
Winky: Is that Anne with an E or just plain Ann?
Anne: It is Anne with e but this isn’t about me. What’s the Name?
