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.

VACATION!

Guess what. My trainer & family are going on vacation to the beach, and I thought that would be so fun (I mean going to the beach, come on that's loads of fun!), then my trainer hit me with the bad news!! I heard her talking to one of the puppy raisers at class, and she was saying... Will you be able to watch Brax for me while I am on vacation? And the other puppy raiser said, "sure here's my email address just email me the dates". And then my trainer came to me and said... "Brax I am sorry but you can't go to the beach with us, but I have found you a puppy sitter, and it will only be for a week". I could not argue with her, (its kind us obvious; well, I am a DOG!) I will be leaving a day before they go to the beach. Don't worry I will leave an update when I get back.



See how sad I look!

PUPPY CLASS!






I got home from puppy class at 9.50pm! I got to wear a full harness, I look soo good!! My two sisters got to wear one to. if you look at the photos you can see me and my group. at the end of puppy class our trainers got cake! All we got was treats; hey, they were still good. My trainer said I did very good at puppy class and kept praising me. So I had fun.

Puppy Class

Tonight is puppy class! I can't wait, hopefully I will be able to wear the harness because I look soo important! I love puppy class since our whole group gets together and all the puppys get to play! (Well until our trainers tell us it is time to start working!) I will leave an update later after puppy class.

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.
