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

Someone got mail...

*(Written by Toby's Raiser)*
Toby received a card in the mail today from SEGDI (his guide dog school), and much to our surprise it was a HAPPY BIRTHDAY card! (see pictures below)
Yes, Toby's 1 year birthday is THIS Saturday. On March 27th he will be a WHOLE year! Time sure has passed quickly,
Happy almost 1 year Toby!

I also want to thank you guys for helping Toby in hopefully reaching 2 of his goals.
He has already made it to 21 comments, and has 96 followers - THANK YOU!

2 of Toby's goals:
1. Get 100 followers on my blog (!!)
2. Get over 20 comments on 1+ posts (20 comments from 20 different blogs).
He still hopes to get more posts with 20+ comments, but he is very happy that he has already received 20 comments on 1 post.
Thank you so much for following, reading, and commenting on his blog! It means so much to a young puppy to know that people enjoy reading this blog :)

Toby went with me to Zumba (at the YMCA) tonight, and did a great 1 hour down-stay, and also made a new friend :) (See pictures below)

Layout of 3 photos - first one says Puppy - Toby, second one shows the return address label (which is Southeastern Guide Dogs), the third picture is of the front of the birthday card - it has 6 milk bone dog treats stacked up & tied with green ribbon, and to the side is says Happy Birthday, both A's are paw prints

Toby's wonderful card
Picture of the inside of Toby's card - the top is a recipe for P.B dog cookies, and the bottom says We wish you a Happy 1st birthday full of yummy surprises - and it's signed by some people in the puppy department

One hour down/stay? Wow, that training is super demanding. I'm 7 and I couldn't do that unless I was sound asleep.
