About Me

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

Christmas Shopping 101

Since all of you guys are most likely trying to finish up your Christmas shopping, I think I should give you a few tips to make shopping WAY more fun.
To start of with, make sure to ALWAYS stop for mirrors when out shopping, you never know how cute you may look:

 Moving on; when you (or your shopping friend) comes across something that you (they) REALLY want, look at the price tag first - can't afford it? Just look away... (this is when the "ignore it" command would be useful - more fur the humans than us pups!)

 After shopping for a while, make sure to stop at the food court and get a little "fuel" in you - of course, that doesn't ever help me AT ALL, since I'm not allowed to eat any of that human food...

And when your raiser (or friend) has her (or his) hand full of shopping bags and wants to go into yet ANOTHER store, just give them this furry cute look...

Trust me, it ALWAYS works!!
I do hope you will be able to take some of my "advice" and put it to good use on your next shopping trip!
Just remember to use that "ignore it" command on something you really don't NEED :)

Wow! That's some mighty good advice - you're very smart for such a little guy. I wonder if the "on by!" command would work on my mom when we go past a quilt shop? Ha roo roo roo!
Play bows,

That looks like fun! I wish I got to go to those places. :)

Sounds like we humans could all learn a thing or two from such a smart pup! You look great out there shopping and keeping your raiser in line!! :)

I like the mirror idea. Always a pleasure to gaze at oneself, isn't it?

Think it's a bit late for me to start training my humans with the 'ignore it' command around the shops. They seem to have been going a bit mad with present-buying. I hope some of them are for me.

Love and licks, Winnie

hey Brandon,

What?!?!? No human food for you??!?!! I think you and I need to have a little woof about that.

Great shopping tips! You are very smart for such a wee pup! But, I just can't get past the "no human food." You poor pup!


p.s. Great photos! You are a handsome wee pup!
