I'm adding here that part of the reason I want to get Murph home is that I think Squeegee and Socks -- Socks especially -- are thinking that they've gotten rid of him again. You can almost see them doing kitty high-fives. But having been through the Utah re-entry, after he'd been at Nina's for two weeks, it's really annoying to go through all the hissing and posturing again. I'd just as soon burst the cats' bubble sooner rather than later.
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.
