Last Sunday we had Simmons for the day and we will have him this coming Saturday for the day.  I was able to get a couple of pictures of him last weekend (though none with his coat on).  My parent’s live on about an acre and he had a great time just running in circles.  Here are some pictures of him wiped out after playing:

And finally: Sleep…

In other news, the first dog I ever worked with at a meeting (Alvin) graduated in October and is now a Guide Dog!  Even though I only worked with him for one meeting, it’s still neat to hear about them graduating from the program.  I’m not sure if I ever posted it here, but the first dog we ever puppy-sat, Robert, was career changed.  We found out when we went down to Puppy Fun Day at the Boring, OR campus in August.  It wasn’t a big surprise to us.  Over time you tend to get a little sense of the the puppies who will and won’t make it.  Every once in awhile though, one will surprise you!

    Woo hoo!!! Simmons is so cute. 🙂 One of my best friends’ last name is Simmons, so I always think of her.
