I am a male yellow Lab. My birth date is September 4th 2011. I am in training to be a guide dog for the blind. (guide dog school -Southeastern Guide Dogs) I'm my raiser's fifth guide dog puppy. She will keep me for (about) 1 year, then I will head off to harness training! Please feel free to follow my blog and keep up with: Brandon's Life... As a guide dog in training

Speech TIME!

Me & Rei

Trainers with Me & Rei

Hi, my trainer did her presentation at county, got a gold and went on to district where she got another gold! She was against 1 other person. Then she went to state on July 17 (2007). She did her speech at 12.30pm and at 1.30-2.00pm they announced the winners in her room. She won silver and was against 7 other people! At state my trainer and I ran into another dog, not just a dog, it was a guide dog in training! I got really exited (I mean when I see another dog I just want to play!) But when my trainer told me to lay down and obey, well I had to! Later after the awards were given out to the gold winners (silver and bronze were given out in there rooms) we went outside and we met the guide dog again! My trainer found out that it was a female lab, she is about 9 months old and her name was Rei. We got our photos taken together as you can see! They took our coats off and let us play some. Then my trainer said it was time to go.

We stayed at 4-H congress from Monday to Wednesday. I even got to sleep in the dorms! I went into the dining hall and all the food looked and smelled soo good! But my trainer told me to "leave it". I got to go with my trainer to the "Hands 2 Service" projects they were doing for
4-H. Her group ended up packing backpacks for the soldiers, and their loved ones. They even wrote letters (which took FOREVER!). When they started packing backpacks I had to lay in a corner at the end of the room (she put me in a stay). It was for almost in hour! ...But I obeyed her and did not get out of stay! We left later that afternoon to go home. Now I am back in my comfortable surroundings.
