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

That's so exciting! Only the very special dogs are picked when a new wheelchair Guide is needed! Congratulations!

I got excited when you said wheelchair dog because there's a woman in my town who's wheelchair guide just retired and she's waiting on a new one and we're thinking she'll get a new one in May. Unfortunately, we're not in Idaho. :D

Wonderful news! I've been in contact with a woman in Florida who has a wheelchair guide. I've been seeing them for the last 2 or 3 years in the spring and writing about visits.
