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.

Shopping is FUN!

Yep, it's that time again.
Puppy comes THIS Sunday, so I had to go "puppy shopping" - yes HAD to :)
Picking out a matching leash and collar and some cute "useful" puppy toys!
(already have the health/grooming items, various dog treats, bed, crate, bowels, food (which we are picking up "with" the puppy) and a couple other items).
The one main thing I still need is a...
NAME TAG.
Which I can't get yet - as I have no idea what his name is!
But all those awesome name ideas for the Name Game I did sounds pretty cool - I betcha one of those is his name! (which is still going - you have 'til Saturday night to enter - hop right over and guess some names - you may win a prize!)
Only one problem - I have OVER 130 name guesses, don't know which one it is!
Since my dog isn't here yet - I'll leave you with some pictures of the puppy's items!
(Don't forget to head over to the Name Game post and pick your fav 5 names!)
P.S. I talked to Brax's owner this morning - post coming soon! (New followers: Brax was the first puppy I raised for SEGDI, he passed rather quickly as a guide dog, and has been working for the past 2 years in FL)

Wow, your dogs get to have a lot of fun. None of those things are on the approved list for GDB puppies.

I can't wait to hear his name. That's my favourite part. :) It won't be long now!

Oh, how we love that collar and leash. Bet you can't wait for Sunday to come. 130 names - that should be fun narrowing it down.

And we love shopping - we need to get our Mom out to do some for us. She says we have enough toys, but we don't think we ever have enough.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara
