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

Happy Thanksgiving!

 (Written by Brandon's raiser)
Happy Thanksgiving to all our blogging friends out there! I'm thankful to have so many friends, and also extremely thankful to be a part of the guide dog program!
Still no news about Brandon, but should be hearing something any day now, it's so hard not knowing anything!
Harris (the chocolate guide dog puppy we're dog sitting) is still here, as we ended up keeping him for another week.
Harris & I have been keeping busy with my college classes, and I also managed to attend a weekend leadership conference this month, which was a great experience for Harris!  (and of course, I enjoyed it!).
Harris has settled in well to my lifestyle and I know I'm going to miss him dearly when he leaves next week!
Have a great Thanksgiving and fingers crossed that I'll have an update about Brandon in a few days!

Chocolate Anyone??

*(Written by Brandon's Raiser)*
I may have decided to take a long break from puppy raising, but I've still planned on puppy sitting for other raisers, when they needed it.
So when given the opportunity to dog sit "Harris" for 3 weeks, I was more than happy to say yes!
Harris is a handsome 1yr old Chocolate Lab, who can make just about anyone fall in love with him in a matter of seconds.

Though I still really miss Brandon (and anxiously awaiting news on how he's doing) I'm extremely glad to have another dog in my life, even if it is for a short time.
Harris is a bundle of fun to work with and has such a different personality than Brandon ever had!  I haven't had the chance to work with a Chocolate guide dog puppy before, and I'm very glad to have Harris with me for the next few weeks!

It's hard to believe Brandon has only been gone for a little under 3 weeks, I won't be expecting to hear any news about Brandon for another week or 2, but will be sure to keep you guys updated!
Enjoy the chocolate pictures below :)
