Well, our latest starter puppy arrived on Thursday and well, let's just say our eardrums will never be the same again!! Doug (Parkay/Bingham) is a cute little yellow boy with a set of lungs on him like none we have ever had!!
He has a very fun personality and is really cute! We are looking forward to working with him over the next month or so and seeing how he progresses & then will hopefully transfer him to someone in our new club!
Our girls (especially my pet dog) aren't quite sure what we have brought home, but in a few days we should all settle in..Too bad Doug has zero interest in food and therefore stuffed kongs do nothing for him! :-)

Good thing he is cute!!

Ogden and Meredith

I'm on my laptop so no pictures in this post but we have some Simon puppy updates!

Ogden (who I started) is in Phase 8 of training for the second week!!! I'm so proud of him and so hope he becomes a guide (that is if he wants to of course).

And Meredith, a Simon/Cagney puppy raised by a good friend of ours and puppysat by us a few times, is officially.... a BREEDER!!!

We want to start one of her puppies if possible! Meredith is a gorgeous and big (65 lbs) female black Lab.

I have also heard that Fame (Simon/Loma), a cross of Simon's, is on breeder eval. And his brother, Furley, who we babysat a few days after his arrival for 5 days, is in class. He is going to be a fantastic guide dog.

Simon now has multiple daughters that are breeders. They include Chenille (Simon/Alanis), who is Claudi's sister and often mentioned Marina's mom, Rose (Simon/Hibiscus), Meredith, and possibly Fame.

And on other news, Tandy Andy is doing better and better. She was having some diarrhea and relieving issues in the house but the switch of foods and a course of antibiotics seems to have helped this.

Claudi however is fighting ongoing IBS issues. She usually has at least 2 days per week of having issues. We are considering a specialist. Has anyone ever seen a specialist for something like this?
