|Thanks to all for joining. I will try to keep everyone up to date on our progress and any new events.
Speaking of events, today is a big day. We are going up to 4 Paws to join their puppy raising program. I thought it would be a good thing for Chris to have a dog in his life while waiting for his SD. It will also force him out of the house since we have to take the pup out for socialization and basic training. He is so excited he is bouncing off the walls! (He just asked for an update on the time!!) .
How it works is we keep the dog for 9 -12 months until it is ready to move on for more advanced training. It is our job to expose the pup to new experiences and get good basic manners in place. We also will be reporting back to 4 Paws about it's temperament and progress. This is something I have always wanted to do so I am as excited as Chris! Of course at the end we will have to give the dog back to 4 Paws, but we know that we are helping someone else get closer to their dream! Chris is suprisingly ok with this and hopefully by that time we will be almost ready to get his dog!
We will let you all know the details as soon as we have the pup!
