We leave for New York in the morning with Zola, who is really a sweetie. Tomorrow is her birthday; I promised Carol, her raiser, that she would get a doggie biscuit and Andrew might even sing. Just one dog. The more we all thought about it, the more we all felt that one dog, one boy is enough fun for all. Pictures to come from the trip and the tour at GEB, which Andrew and I are eagerly anticipating.
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.
