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

Santa Claus! (and eye update)

(Me and my trainer sitting with Santa)







While at Walmart with my trainer, we stopped and saw Santa!!


I got my picture taken with him, and also told him what I wanted for Christmas- mostly treats!





My trainer said she's thinking about still taking me to PetSmart to get my picture made with Santa Claus their. (all because of the cute frame...).









We are having our annual guide dog Christmas party this Saturday, I am soo excited- as I get to meet the newest additions 2 our group!! (lots of cute little puppies:).


I am also on a " strick treat diet" starting 2 days ago-as to my trainer thinks something in the treats has been making me have eye issues (if you do not remember anything about this, check out this post). This issues started Back in October- They cleared up pretty well after I was on the medicine, and for a while they stayed like that. But slowly it started coming back, every couple days she will notice it.


My trainer is starting to now think that it might have to do with the treats I have been getting.

So know she has put me on a treat diet, and I am only allowed to have carrots, mini dog bones, & ice cubs. She started this 2 days ago, and so far has not noticed anything. But if she does, she will put me on only treats from my dog food.


I hope she finds out my problems soon, because I am going to miss my "bac'n bites" (by, Canine Carry Outs).


My trainer hopes to get some pictures with me & our Christmas tree soon, not forgetting to use the reindeer antlers, a Santa hat, and whatever else she comes up with!


Enjoy the pictures with me & Santa, and I will be doing a letter to Santa soon:)

Cute pictures. The new babies are adorable and so sweet especially little miss. Angel, Sparky and Cindy Jae. Bingo and Elsa are probably just as cute, but I have not met them yet.
