HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY TOBY!
*(written by Rudy's Raiser)* I've been so busy taking care of all my new baby goats... that I almost forgot to do a HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY post for TOBY. (My last guide dog puppy). Toby turned TWO years old today (March 27th) - gosh, I remember when he was such a cute little puppy... And now, he's not only a nice handsome dog - he's also serving as a Search & Rescue dog! I'm so proud of my boy :) A (very) quick recap with the dates/months of when Toby came/left/graduated... We first picked up Toby on May 30th 2009, and he didn't return to the guide dog school till April 16th 2010. In October 2010 I heard that Toby was being Career changed due to allergies, but would hopefully be working as a service dog. In November 2010 I got the email telling me Toby's allergies were so severe, that he was going to be adopted out as a pet. BUT in December 2010 I was surprised with the news, that Toby would be heading into the "Search & Rescue" work! Toby decided after all, that working was way more important then his allergies! I would like to wish Toby the best of luck with his job, and... a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOBY! I love (and miss) you :) Rudy's (and Toby's) Raiser
