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

Brandon Update... Finally!

I have finally gotten Brandon's first update from the guide dog school, he passed his medical/hip tests and has now moved into training!
I'm glad Brandon has started training, and I know he must be enjoying himself and his classmates.
I should be getting his harness photo in the next few weeks; I'm looking forward to seeing how grown up my boy looks!
Starting in the next month or so, I should be receiving monthly updates/report cards about Brandon's training. 
Still, at any point, Brandon could be career changed due to a training/medical issue he may have developed, so please continue to pray and keep your fingers and paws crossed for him!  I want what's best for  my sweet boy and I'll be excited to see how Brandon progresses during his training.

Harris (the chocolate lab I was puppy sitting) returned to his raiser this past week, and he started his guide dog journey in FL this past Saturday, I wish him the best of luck with his training, he sure was a joy to have for the last month!

On a totally different note, I will be doing a review and giveaway on some doggy toys (thanks to Hartz!)
So keep your eyes peeled for that post!

I understand the headlock - I wouldn't want to give him up either! ;)

I'm glad you got an update, I'll keep my fingers crossed things go smoothly.
