So this morning, Miss Nettie had a fit of whining/barking at 2:30 a.m. and again at 5:45. Humility is clearly the key component of puppy raising. We'll get this schedule thing worked out. She is so sweet -- and so smart, too.
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.
