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

Happy Mother's Day!

Hope every blogger had a great Mother's Day!

Pretty soon I should be getting a email/phone call about Toby... hopefully this Wednesday I should know something - Is he staying in training, getting "cut" (adopted out)... ?
I wish I knew - but only a couple more days to wait.

Since Toby isn't here to do a "Happy Mother's Day" post - I just picked out a couple pictures of him & I to include - I know he would have wanted that, (I kind of counted as "his mother"!)

Enjoy and have a GREAT Mother's Day!

And one of a mom's jobs is to raise her young to venture forth into the world on their own and be successful. We bet Toby thanks you for the great job.

I know what you mean about the call. My Freya has been gone for almost 3 months now and I'm expecting a call any day telling me she's in class. It's looking less and less likely that she's coming home. I wish she could be here for Mother's Day.

Lola said...

Of course you count has his mother. What is a Mom if not a Raiser? Can't wait for the update on Toby!
