He's enjoying his new role and is expected to stay in it for some time.
He greets visitors at the Queensland Government House and is even part of official government ceremonies. His official title is Vice-Regal dog. An official spokesperson for the office of the governor said, “Gavel on occasions sits in on briefings with the Governor.” They continued, “Gavel has also demonstrated his capacity to uphold the ceremonial importance of his role at State of Origin time.” We love how official all their statements sound! Gavel sure has become an important part of their office.
Governor de Jersey said, “We hope Gavel’s with us for a long, long time into the future.”
Gavel isn't the only dog with a job!
This is Piper, a wildlife control canine at Cherry Capital Airport in Traverse City, Mich. His owner posted this caption on Instagram: “Piper’s open mind is perhaps his greatest strength. From starting training at an older age to working in a weird environment and everything between, dude is open to most all challenges (except thunder, no… just no 😂)”
Piper is reacting to that helicopter like a champ! We would be freaking out if we were standing where he is.
This is Maui.
She’s training to be a psychiatric service dog. Psychiatric service dogs help people with mental disabilities or conditions like depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. She’s a golden retriever–Newfoundland mix who lives in Southern California. What a good dog!
This is Luna.
She’s a German shepard–great Pyrenees mix who’s training to be a medical alert dog! Luna goes everywhere with her mom and is steadily learning all the skills she needs to know to get certified. She’s doing such a great job. Look how excited she is to help her owner pick things up!
This is Honor.
Honor is a 3-year-old service dog who helps retired marines return to civilian life. She is part of the “freedom dogs” program, which matches service dogs with wounded military members. The dogs give the recovering veterans mental and physical support.
We love these pups and are so thankful that they help their owners live happy lives.
