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

Happy New Years!

Hello 2012!
I have been so furry busy, that I've yet to do a post about the New Year, I can't believe that!
Wanna know what I've been "so busy" with??
I got to spend the last week with my raiser's AWESOME friends who are in a different state, and we all enjoyed celebrating the New Year together!
I had such a good time with them, and though my raiser made me spend some of the time in the crate, I did enjoy my week. The family has an older male yellow lab, who would "sometimes" play with me, but I think that at times, he got annoyed with my "cute puppy look"...
My raiser's friends were soo fun to hang out with, and spent (almost) every second with me!
We all went out together to watch the movie War Horse while we were visiting with the friends, my raiser said it was a great movie, but I wouldn't know... since I slept through the entire movie! (which my raiser was quite proud about!).

On to the New Year stuff though...
I had a WONDERFUL 2011, the main highlight was the fact that...
* I was BORN in 2011
A few other things about 2011
* I had my first Christmas
* My raiser took me on lots of outings
* Meeting new people

A few goals for this year:
* Keep up with blogging regularly
* Reach over 350 followers (current: 322)
* Have more comments per post
* Keep an open mind when my raiser tries to teach me new things

Furry thanks to my raiser's wonderful friends, for letting us spend the New Year with you guys, we had a blast - and it wouldn't have been near as fun without you!
Our guide dog group's "New Years Party" will be this Saturday, I'm looking forward to more partying...

Last picture of Brandon for 2011! (picture of Brandon in a sit-stay with glowing eyes)!

I just wish my raiser would tell me WHERE we are suppose to be sitting in the movie theater...

I got to spend lots of time like this...

And the other dog (Woody) NEVER got locked up...

 But my raiser's friends did make sure to spend LOTS of furry fun time with me!

And (at times) I was able to spend time with the other dog Woody...

Chewy said...

well why did you have to get put in the crate not fair! You are adorable though...


Suka said...

hey Brandon,

Great photos! You are growing into such a handsome pup! It sounds like you did amazingly well at all your outings and events, congratulations! And I am so furry happy you had such a fun New Years. Your Raiser's friends sound very nice. The only thing is...the dreaded crate. So sorry. I agree with Chewy, not fair!

Brandon, I think you're growing up faster than Kuster! He has to spend a lot of the time in a crate, too, but I don't think he minds it. You sure had an awesome vacation!


Jess and Glacier said...

Too cute. It sounds like you have been getting in some very good practice; just in case you decide to become a guide dog one day. :)
Happy 2012 to you and your raiser

Miley said...

Brandon, you are the cutest! And I went and saw war horse too. It would be cool for them to make a movie on war dogs.
