GATSBY has been hard at work but if you asked him, he would not call it anything but play. Gatsby certainly has the ability and willingness to help someone gain independence. We hope to have Gatsby ready to run through pre-placement testing in the next few months. Lately Gatsby has also enjoyed running through the trails and keeping up with Rob’s bike now that we have better weather.
