About Me

My photo
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

Christmas Goodies!!

(me laying down, giving the cutest face

Sorry it took so long to write this post, my trainer has been "After Christmas" busy!
I had an awesomely fun Christmas, and got many good goodies!

My trainer filled my stocking with lots of toys, and a little bit of treats (since I'm on a treat diet, she doesn't want me having to many).

I finally got to open the gifts I got from the guide dog Christmas party, they are soo cool! (ones already in the trash...).

I really enjoyed my first Christmas, and I'm so sorry to see it pass by so fast. I am sad to know that this will be my only Christmas with my trainer, as next year (2010) I will be IFT (in for training) at the guide dog school.

I would have to say the BEST thing I got for Christmas is a small stainless steel bowl. It it the one toy I CAN NOT tear up! Which makes my trainer really happy:)

My trainers favorite "toy" she got for Christmas was a Gorillapod, it really helps her take pictures of both me AND her!

Enjoy all the photos, and we hope you guys had a really pawsome Merry Christmas!!
Did you have a favorite Christmas toy/gift?? I'd love to hear about it!

Glad to hear you had a great Christmas! We got lots of fun toys too!! We each got a football Stuffy, a bone Stuffy, a fleece tug, and a compressed rawhide bone! My (Eclipse) favorite is my football! Oscar's favorite is his bone stuffy! Mom's favorite was her new fancy camera from dad and Grandpa.

Wow you sure tore those toys up! It normally takes me at least a week or so to destroy a toy if I really keep gnawing at it.

I'd hate to be your snack bone!

Enjoy your new bowl!

What a great Christmas you had and you got some very cool presents!

I didn't think much of my new bowl and toy but Murray's new toy dog Doug is great fun! I love listening to him! Finally, Murray has accepted I won't talk to him and now we have Doug to do the 'dog talk!'

Best wishes for a very Happy New Year - we look forward to following your progress in 2010!

Clive, Murray and all the gang
