News You Have Been Waiting For!

well, not 100% sure if I can say this, but certain things have led me to believe that I can :)
So........Cobra passed all his eye and hip tests with flying colors and is training in the service dog program! He is coming along really really well and if nothing goes wrong, he will be graduating in October!!!
I am just so excited that he's almost there! He's almost partnered with someone and will be helping them in ways thought never possible!


Yeah, sure I'm bummed out about not being a puppy raiser right now, but it's only for awhile. I talked to some people and they seem optimistic that I can raise after I finish my three year apprenticeship program :) Right now, I'm just going to work on learning all the fine arts of being a Guide dog trainer! :)

YAY SARAH!!!!! THat's so awesome! WHOOOO HOOO COBRA! SO PROUD! And... I can make it to the October grad. Can't wait to see you up there with your boy!!!! Who knows... I might decide to bring my camera. HA HA!!!

THAT'S AWESOME about letting you after your apprenticeship. SO, we still have a chance of raising littermates! YAY!!! (Well, I guess we still do, since your the pre-puppy raiser.)

p.s. I still expect the little hooligan to be completely potty trained when I get him (or her). HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!
