Murphy is now at 60 pounds, at 6 1/2 months. Whew! The other milestone: Bob is on record as saying we can keep Murph if he doesn't pass his IFTs (I think that unlikely) or I can raise another pup if he does.
An optimistic meditation on puppy raising for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, and other adventures in chaos.
Murphy (Wella x Farrell), the first pup we raised, is a male black Lab who graduated in June 2007 and is working as a guide dog in Wyoming.
The second pup, Nettie (Quarry x Evan), a female yellow Lab, arrived in mid-February 2007 at 6 months old and stayed with us for a year. She graduated in August 2008 and is working as a guide dog in Kansas.
