Baity Update: He made it!!

As you might be able to tell from the title we have some exciting news about Baity! He has made it as a  guide dog and has been matched with a blind person! We just found out today and couldn't wait to share the great news. It came as quite a surprise because I just received his 4th monthly report last week. I assumed he had a few more months to go if he did in fact make it. But sure enough, he has made it. Along with some siblings as well!

In just a week we will get the opportunity to drive back down to the school and see Baity and his new partner. We know it will be an amazing experience and I am so excited for his new owner and the life they will have together as he becomes his or her companion and guide. He will make an amazing guide dog and friend.

I'm counting down the days until I get to watch Baity do what he was born to do... LEAD!

Baity's First time in Coat

Baity's new adventures are just getting started!

Kids Museum

Back in June we had a great puppy meeting at a kids center. It's kind of like a museum, but it has lots of activities and fun things for young kids to do. It's very important that we expose the puppies to all different ages of kids because many dogs can develop a fear of children if they are not introduced to them early on, or frequently. The trip was definitely a success and lots of fun!

No one realizes how much work and time it takes to get all the dogs sitting and ignoring each other just long enough for a picture!
