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.

Last Shopping Trip

My raiser took me "shopping" with her today... all day. We went in soo many different stores (including some with clothes...), but I didn't mind - as this will be my last real "shopping trip".
As, tomorrow I'll be heading to an all day event (pictures to come... after I leave), and we'll be leaving Sunday morning.
My raiser is proud at how well I've been doing with my outings. She noted that my most favorite commands are: "Find the door", "Switch", "Heel", "Left-Left/Right-Right". Of course, she knows I love all of my wonderful commands - but for some reason, the above ones have been my favorite.
My raiser did snap some pictures of me, while on our shopping trip - and she'll be sure to post them (once I'm gone...).
I can't believe I'll be heading back THIS Sunday, time sure has flown by. I'm really going to miss my raiser, and all of my wonderful blog readers!
If at all possible, I do plan on posting tomorrow... and maybe I'll be able to do a "last post" Sunday evening, once we're in FL.
My raiser just got done making a "paw print stepping stone" for me. It's gorgeous - and not only did she put my paw print in it... she also let Little Lucy (the baby goat) put a hoof print beside mine :) I'll make sure she promises to post pictures of it, I know you guys would love to see it!
Have a wonderful weekend!

You got to go shopping ALL day?? Sounds like a blast!! Hope your raiser and you have a great time your last days together. Good luck with your new adventure Rudy and I love the idea of your paw print and the goats. Your raiser isn't the only one who going to miss you. :)

hey Rudy,

I am sure going to miss you! The paw-print stone sounds pawsome, especially with Little Lucy's hoof next to yours. Very sweet! Can't wait to see photos of that.

I am impressed you were shopping all day. That is something that even tires my human, so I can imagine how draining that must have been. Congratulations for doing so well!

I think "find the door" would be my favorite command too, because translated it means, "Freedom!" BOL!

If you do not get a chance to blog again, have a wonderful and safe trip to FL, and good luck with all that lies ahead in your life. You are a beautiful, amazing, and smart dog, and I know you will rock at whatever you do! Good-bye Friend!
