New puppy's blog

Which one is it?


My trainer has decided instead of setting up a whole new blog for the puppy, she is going to let the puppy keep my blog going and just name it Brax's and ??? blog.
So make sure you look at the signature to see which dog its from.
Once I find out the puppy's name I will change the blog to both of our names.
Please keep leaving comments, the new pup and I will still love knowing what our readers think!

PUPPY!!

My trainer's area coordinator, called us on the way down to FL, and said that they have some one month old pups and my trainer can have one!!!! There are 3 yellow girls, 1 black girl, and 1 black boy, they are full blooded Labradors and there moms name is Dotty.

My trainer got to chose what she wanted, and she decided on one of the female yellow ones. They aren't tattooed yet, so the people working there didn't know which was which, they even let my trainer meet them (but since they were only 1 month old she couldn't pet or hold them), if you look in the picture below yo
u can see the 3 cute yellow labs.

Also at the school they had some older pups there that my trainer could play with, so the one of a whole bunch of puppies attacking my trainer is not 1 of the ones she is getting.

She will be getting her new puppy at the Guide Dog Walk-A-thon this year, in March.

See they are really cute!!

Attack of the dogs!!











In For Training

The lady in the blue shirt is a guide dog
trainer, and after she gives me some love
she is going to take me to the kennels.
I have gone back to FL and am in the kennels with my siblings.

The school will only send monthly updates to my (okay,was my) trainer, so I will post updates on how my training is doing once the trainer has told me.

Update on my trainer

My trainer went to the orthopedist today and he told her that she can go back to being normal again!! She actually held my lead (while walking with out crutches!) and walked me out of the doctors.

She is going to be able to walk me and hand me off to the trainer at the school.
I am leaving Wednesday and being dropped off Thursday.

New pup

My trainer still does not know when she is getting her new dog, (or what breed). But the school is sending a bunch of dogs (including Australian Shepherds) over to TX, and there might be some leftovers. So that means my trainer might get a puppy sooner and they even said it might be a Aussie, they are soo cute and have lots of fuzzy hair!!!
My trainer has gotten all my forms filled out and she is ready to take me when it's time.
I still don't know what to think, do I not want to make it and stay with my trainer, or do I want to be a guide dog?

Me

My trainer took this photo of me, and I thought it was neat so I wanted to put it on my blog.

Never Cry Wolf

My trainer was watching a movie with the family (at home) and it had dogs and wolves in it. (well the name was Never Cry Wolf!)

I heard them barking and howling, and I even watched some of it.



My trainer has been told that she probably won't be getting another puppy for a while, I will let you know if she finds out anymore.

Movies!!!

Hey guys,
If you ever saw one of the posts I did about wishing there was a guide dog movie out on a big screen, guess what me and my trainer's family went to see Alvan & the Chipmunks, and for one part while the chipmunks were in the office coming out of the tree, they ran into a dog! And it was a working German Shepherd with a blind person! Yes it was in the movie not in the movie theater.

So guys make sure to get your trainers to let you go to that movie!!
