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

Please Welcome:

We picked up Rudy at 9pm, he is the sweetest and calmest pup (for now) that I know!
We found out that he's not just black... his real color is: A Black AND tan puppy.... which means?
He has "a little bit" of tan markings on his legs!
He did wonderfully in the crate last night - a little bit of crying, but soon realized it doesn't get him anywhere.
I would have posted last night - but 11pm was a little too late for me :)
I will give a real update on Rudy (with lots of pictures) soon - but for now enjoy the couple taken last night/this morning!
P.S. Rudy feels very sad that NOT A SINGLE blogger guesses his name :( But you guys did have some great guesses!

Oh is just all kinds of sweet. I would haves never imagined him to be a Rudy though. Oh well, it's still a great name.

There is a guidedog puppy in our Puppy Kindergarten that looks a lot like Rudy - his name is Mason and he is the most laid back puppy I have ever seen.

OMG!!! He is going to be big and adoraable! So he has a wee bit of chocolate in there :) I wish schools would use chocolates but they don't. Just too cute for words

retriever farm said...

He's adorable!!!! Just an FIY he is not a true black and tan that would look like a Rottie or a Dobe. He is what is called splashed. It is a geneic mutation of the color alleles and occurs in labradors, not sure about goldens. Not that it matters He's as cute as can be! Can't wait to hear more from our little Rudy. :)

Amanda said...

I love the coloring on Rudy's legs. I haven't ever seen a lab with markings like that before. :)

ocmist said...

Welcome to the blogging world, Rudy! You've got a great life planned for you, little guy, and we know that you will make your Trainer proud in the years to come! The CCC

Another note- I don't think he's black and tan. I think he's genetically tan pointed but also carrying the gene for brindle, which occurs in labs but rarely. He COULD be splashed tan but I doubt it- too much coverage and it's too irregular. VERY interesting!
