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

My First Puppy Meeting

I attended my very first puppy meeting last week, and though I didn't know many of the commands... I still enjoyed my first meeting!
My raiser was impressed with how well I did at the meeting, and she liked how I maintained myself when I was near other doggies (meaning - I didn't go crazy like some of the other doggies did).
I'm looking forward to my next meeting, and my raiser hopes that I will have a understanding of a few more doggy commands, I told her I that I'll learn them in my own time!
Furry kisses to you all and thanks fur stopping by!!

Oh, BTW - enjoy the furry awesome photos below!!

Picture taken from a different angle - which makes Brandon appear quite larger than he his (photo of his sitting beside me)

Nice work! Looks like you're doing a great job Brandon.

I have a future guide dog for the blind in my Canine Good Citizen class that meets tonight, and am so impressed with the discipline these creatures develop.

With a sweet, patient and kind raiser like you have, Brandon...you are going to turn into a wonderful guide-dog. Our friend will be getting her new pup in 2 weeks time. "He" is part of the "T" litter and they are still trying to choose a name.
