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

Outings with Rudy (complete with PICTURES!)

Yesterday was our first day with Rudy.
Of course we headed off to town for shopping time :)
Rudy has a VERY sweet temperament and is calm and quiet.

For the first couple months of a raising a guide dog puppy, you are allowed (if wanted) to let it receive affection in coat (to learn that the coat is a good thing). Rudy is very sweet with children and is the calmest thing! (see pictures below).

I've already had many comments on how well we've trained him... to bad I can't take much credit for it!
With him being only 9 weeks old we can't wait to find out how is temperament will be as he gets older, so far he has been the calmest pup I've had!

I'm very happy we have all of you guys out there to follow our adventures and we look forward to sharing many good times together!

Housebreaking & crate training has been going very well. And so far in public he's been doing amazing!
Please enjoy all the pictures taken yesterday of our outings!
Rudy will be posting on the blog in the next couple days, I know you look forward to that :)
P.S. I do hope to visit some of your blogs in the next day or so... if "time" lets me...

Shopping carts are the way to go! (For the first couple outings we use shopping carts - not jumping straight into walking through the entire store!)

Another cute picture of Rudy sleeping in the shopping buggy!Picture of Rudy laying down in Dollar Tree, with a girl's hand petting him

You can tell he is quite fazed by this girl...

Hi Rudy and your raiser! Ohh, we loved all these photos! So, Rudy has a bit of a 'surfer dude' laid-back attitude eh?! JD is delighted as that's what he's like too, unlike Max who is always 'on duty', he he he! Rudy - we can't wait to be with you as you grow up - it's very exciting!

Oh, he's just as sweet looking as can be. And there's nothing wrong with a relaxed quiet pup. Sounds like he could be a natural as a guide dog.

Oh, Rudy! I haves been so remiss in not coming by to see you and welcome you to the Bloggie World! You are one of the most adorablest puppies I have ever seen. Do you have some brindle furs on your legs? It kinda looks like you do. Well, no matter what, you are still most happy-inducing.

Wiggles & Wags,
