Tori lucked into a volunteer/ apprenticeship position. She'll be bathing, comforting, playing with dogs and cats and all around gophering at a grooming shop right down the street. The owner offered to teach her grooming! A plus is there are wolf pictures on the walls in the shop. So she will be mentoring with a fellow wolf lover.
After searching high and low, a short email to an astronomy prof here in town led to Brandon getting involved with the Amateur Astronomy Club. Ahh star gazes on the beach with powerful telescopes and others who have loads of knowledge. What more could you ask for.
Sometimes things just fall into place.
