Doug isn't coming home..

We were told today that Doug Dog is training to be a wheelchair guide and will be graduating in May. He will be going to Idaho for in home training.

We had heard rumor of him being trained as a wheelchair guide and I was fearing the in-home training..I really wanted to meet his person-it makes it much easier to not have them come home..Marina was in-home trained also..Good thing Emmy wasn't!

I can't wait to go see Doug-atleast we get to go say goodbye in a few weeks..

Lowell is great. He is alot like Doug--super easy going and low energy. I really like him. Vona came for a visit last night--she is still the same tornado of a pup..She never sits still that one!..

I ordered doug some toys and a photo album for his person..I hope we can be in contact with him/her.. Kim

Well, just as I decided to take a break from Guide Dogs and Bethany is getting attached to Jethro...we got a call yesterday that a SIMON puppy is available and will be here TOMORROW!..We have been wanting another Simon puppy for the past 8 pups!! Bethany raised Simon-I moved in with her when he ws 6 months old-we then raised his daughters Emmy, Claudine and Natara and started his son Ogden..We also got to co-raise his granddaughter Marina for a while..We love our big Simon boy and are sooo excited to get our MYL tomorrow!!

Sadly, Jethro will be getting transferred asap...He's a really nice puppy, but we couldn't resist....
