It's been a while sorry. Well I took Powell back on November 29th, 2008. It was kind of quick we went to Guide dogs took him to his cage took pictures and left. He was a very good dog. I have not gotten a new dog yet. I sooo want a puppy, but it just won't work out right now. I will update some more later. Bye

Powell is just so cute

Well yesterday I was at home working on my homework for college and I was just sitting around. Powell was just wandering because he doesn't know what to do if I can't play with him. So he went over to my dad and my dad petted him a little. So Powell went and laded down. Well thats where the pictures come in.
He was just so cute like that. The pillow was already on the floor like that, but that is his favorite place to lay down. So when the pillow ended up on the floor he decided that he could lay on it:) You can also see some of his teeth out in front. ^__^

Update....and Fun Day

I haven't been on here for a while so here it goes. I have had Powell a Male Yellow Lab. He is a really good puppy. He loves going to the co-raisers house because they have a pet dog that loves to play with him. In July he went with his first raisers on "vacation":) They took him with them on vacation.... so weird, but they had a great time. They also have a puppy named Sparta. She is a puppy from her new GDB breeder dog named Samosa.

Well on August 2nd GDB had a 'Fun Day', which they have every year, and other puppy groups come and sell stuff to make money for their groups and GDB puts some little seminars on for us. Well our group was selling two big baskets of Dog stuff, not cheap stuff either.

New picture of Navarone

My sister emailed me a picture of Nav when he was about three months old. She found it, I think, on her computer or on her camera chip. It is so cute.

Wenda gone and Powell in...

Hi everyone it has been a while since I have posted on here I just haven't found time to. Wenda went back to Guide dogs May 3rd. We had a nice time before we took her back my mother and I met up with two other puppy raisers and two blind ladies that work at Guide Dogs. It was really fun to get to know some knew people. After Wenda went back I was puppyless until May 14th when I got Powell. He is from another raiser in our group. He is a Male Yellow Lab almost 9 months old. I will be co-raising him with my friends. He is a very good puppy just need to work on some problems like all puppies.

Wenda and our adventures

It has been a while so I decided to post an update on us. Wenda is doing better her rash is gone *yeah* and her soft trachea...the doctor said that it could just be stuff getting stuck or tickling her throat but I am not using the head collar as much any more and she seems fine. I got her recall date... it is May 3-4. I know it is a far way off but I can't wait I am happy and sad. I think she will make it far in the Guide dog program. The other day I took her to a concert, orchestra concert, and she did very well. My uncle plays the trumpet and they record their concerts so when I had my first dog, Nav, they were really hesitant about a puppy coming because it might whine and/or bark but I assured her that he wouldn't do that. So now about 1 year almost 2 I have brought both of my dogs to their concerts and they, my aunt, will ask if I am going to bring my dog. She even told my about a Guide dog in training that she saw and she told me that it wasn't very good because it was jumping all over the raiser. My aunt is more aware of the Guide dogs in training and other service dogs since I have been raising. Wenda and I have been together now for, since September, 5 months:) WOW Time does fly when you're having fun;) These are some pictures of *Princess Wenda* out in my front yard. Our tree got cut down, because it was getting old and some of the branches fell off BIG branches and fell onto our neighbors car, in a big storm we had in January. It is the perfect spot for pictures:) I have a picutre of Wenda where she looks like she is a snotty princess with her nose in the air it is so funny. Lets see if I can find it... The first on is it, it is really cute

Wenda has had these bumps on her underside for a couple weeks now and she has also been coughing like she has soft trachea (soft throat) so we took her into the vet yesterday. The vet said we will have to keep an eye on her for the soft trachea cause she wasn't too bad, she only coughed once, and she gave us some medicine for the bump things. Well I guess it wasn't too informative but, hopefully the medicine will help with the bumps. We usually have Guide Dog meetings on some Thursday, but we don't have it tonight. I will get some pictures of our group up next week so everyone can see how cute they are!
