Puppies!

Last night I once again had the opportunity to hang out with the most adorable yellow and black lab puppies. I have started working with Guide Dogs for the Blind. They are a great organization that started in 1942. I have been attending meetings and outings for about two months now. Last night I had the opportunity to hang out with Alvin: A 14 month old black lab who is due for re-call in March. That means he is ready to head to the campus in Boring, OR and begin his formal training to be placed with a blind person. If he does not make it, he will become a career change dog. I turned my paper work in last night to start the process of becoming a puppy sitter. Above is a picture of what a working guide dog puppy looks like at 8 weeks when they are first placed in a home.
