February pictures!! wow!

Trainer update!!

Shadow: Stops at curbs, finds seats and doors, avoids obstacles. Has done escalators, train and subway. No problem areas at this point. He is happy, calm, smart, friendly and has a low distraction level. Excellent potential as a guide dog.

Still calling her a "he" but we're glad she's doing well!

More Shadow Training Pictures!!!

The December pictures of Shadow are here!! Take a look.
The trainer says Shadow is working in harness, has great potential, and is a little worried about traffic noise (which is surprising for us, since she never seemed afraid of it before).

Email update!

"Stops at curbs and good straight line. Building confidence around noisy traffic. Listens well, easy to control, fun, happy, smart, learns quickly and sensitive. The trainer wants to know if he has any fears and how are his housemanners."

Still listed as a "he"...isn't that weird? Anyway, that's exciting!!

New puppy!!

Today we received word that we will probably be getting a male golden retriever breeder candidate puppy September 8. THAT'S ONLY A WEEK AND A HALF AWAY!!! I'm so excited. He was probably born July 3rd. I can't wait to have a new little fuzzball puppy around here again. We still don't have Shadow's turn-in date, though.

The new puppy's blog is at and I will continue to give updates on Shadow on that blog as we receive them from GDF.
