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

Just imagine... this blog will soon be filled with lots of updates about a furry yellow puppy... in just 1 week (almost).
What, a new puppy is coming?
Yep! That's the "exciting news" I couldn't tell you guys in my last post; since I thought it deserved to have it's very own post.
When I filled out the application to receive another puppy, I was told that it would most likely be mid November. I attended a puppy meeting the end of September, and a trainer from Southeastern Guide Dogs was there, so I decided to go ahead and ask, since my sponsors were wanting to know when I'd be getting the puppy. She said that didn't have many puppies at the moment, and any they will have, are going to people that have been waiting since LAST November for one. She said they would be having quite a few litters in January/February - and our group will most likely be getting some of those.
So I've been thinking I wouldn't have a puppy till 2012; but then I received an email last week, asking if I'd like to raise a male yellow lab, which I could get the end of THIS month (October).
Evidently the placement fell through and the puppy didn't have a raiser, since it was such last minute; all the raisers on the waiting list weren't prepared to get a puppy in just a few weeks.
I jumped at the chance, and I'm now looking forward to receiving my 5th guide dog puppy on Sunday October 30th (in the evening).
I'm still looking for a co-sponsor to help with the in home care of the puppy; so please pray that I'll be able to find one soon!
I will be heading to the State Fair tomorrow with all my dairy goats; and when I get back (with lots of ribbons!) I'm going to be getting ready for a PUPPY.
Hopefully I'll be finding out his name soon; but I'm still trying to decide if I should tell you guys the name right away - or make it a "guessing game" - your thoughts?

Once the new puppy gets here, this blog will start being updated more often (really, it will!) AND I will start visiting you guys/leaving comments... don't think that I've abandoned you :)
