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 Raiser's Graduation!

I'm so furry sorry it's been so long since my last post, I feel like I've lost all my friends! I sure hope you're still out there... somewhere!
Our summer has been crazy hectic, and we've had very little down time for "extra" things - my raiser still can't understand that if she'd just give me the password... I could totally get on and blog anytime... guess she's worried I'd overload you with cuteness!

 My raiser had her high school graduation a few weeks back (home schooled her entire life!) and one of her main goals, was to take a guide dog puppy across stage with her (since that's pretty much been her life for the last 6 years!). Thankfully I was able to fill that role and was there right beside her the entire time, providing all the morale support needed.
 My raiser was so very proud of me for actually sticking it out and not getting anxious or bored with the long ceremony and best of all... not bothering the other graduates!
 Pictures below were taken during graduation, hopefully I'll post her senior pictures (that have me in them!) soon.

One more major update before I go... my raiser received word from the guide dog school that I was to be neutered, so I was taken to the vet last week... my raiser is quite happy about this, as she seems to think it will "somewhat" help some issues I've been having.
Missing all of you guys very much, so sorry it's been so long! Please know that I'm really still here :)
