Arrival Story: I've raised Kirby from the age of 8 weeks as a 'puppy-in-training' for Guide Dogs of America, February 2005 he was accepted into their breeding progam as a stud. It should be fun to see how his puppies do!
Where did 2006 go? Year of the Dog seems more like "Year of the Fly" - it flew by so fast! I had some new experiences - I became a dad, got to go to the snow for the first time and LOVED it! Who knows what's in store for 2007 , I can't wait.
WOW I spent all day yesterday at the pool in Murrieta, CA. Sswimming & running after Suki, Hayes, Dublin and my new friend, Sandy. She is a 7 month old Briard - very fluffy and full of energy. By the time Sandy left I was ready for a nap - but I had to keep watch over the neightorhood, you never know when a coyote might wander into the yard (as if I'd really know what to do when I saw one!) but at least it looked like I was doing something.
I also heard from my mom that my 'brother' Hayes won a contest and his picture will be featured - along with a whole bunch of other dogs - at the end of a movie called "Firehouse Dog". No word on the release date other than sometime in 2007. I hope I get to see the movie and Hayes' picture!
Well, I am officially a daddy. My first litter was born this spring and all are happy and healthy. Kudos to their mom (who shall remain nameless) for doing a great job taking care of them unitl they went off to their new puppy raisers. Good luck kids, I know you will all make great Guide Dogs some day!
