Paw Prints on her heart...
My Raiser likes to remember the dogs she raises. Besides the hundreds of pictures she takes, there is 1 other thing she uses to really remember us by.
When she had her first dog Brax she was given a "stepping stone kit" for Christmas.
She decided to use it with Brax a couple weeks before he left. She took a paw print from him and his name tag - she put those items in the stepping stone for a nice memory.
The following year before Frankie returned to school my Raiser remembered to buy a stepping stone kit. After she took Frankie's paw print she decided to start a tradition - every guide dog she raises will have a stepping stone with their paw print in it.
Well my time has "come" for me to return, I leave THIS Tuesday, so the beginning of April she bought a stepping stone kit for me - and it soon came time to use it.
Beside my paw print she also put my almost new name tag (we got it back in February) in it and even used mini rocks to spell out my name.
I'm happy my Raiser will have this to remember me by, I know she will really miss me and cry lots, so I hope this helps :)
See pictures below of the cool stepping stone!
I can't believe I will only be doing 1-2 more posts before I'm turned in, I will treasure each word I type knowing I won't be on this blog anymore :(
With the wait being 2-3 months before my Raiser receives another puppy this blog won't be updated nearly as often as I've been posting. My Raiser would love to post each day, but she won't have many things to post about.
Please note that she is NOT abandoning this blog, and she does plan on updating it frequently.
This blog will also be used for updates about ME.
So when she receives ANY information on how I'm doing, what career I may have chosen or just a random update it WILL be posted!
I hope you guys will continue to follow this blog whether or not it's updated often, because one day... their will be another puppy!
My Raiser is planning on doing the giveaway drawing next week (April 18th - Sunday), so if you haven't already entered please make sure to!
I won't be here to draw a name, so early congrats to the winner!
I plan on doing a picture post tomorrow, and hopefully 1 more Tuesday (before I leave for FL, or maybe once we reach FL).
My Raiser has many pictures of me (and will have many more) so she plans on doing some pictures posts for me.
Happy Sunday, this is my LAST EVER Sunday with my Raiser... :(
Enjoy the pictures below!
