This is Dune our seventh puppy in training. We have two puppies in our household again. Dune is a spunky and inquisitive puppy. She is very smart and opinionated and always willing to share that opinion. Dune loves life and Zodiac.
Zodiac is our sixth puppy from Guide Dogs for the Blind. He is growing up quickly and we expect him to return to GDB for training sometime around June.
Yakira, our fifth puppy, graduated on February 2nd, 2013 from the Boring, Oregon campus of Guide Dogs for the Blind. She now lives with her partner, Diane in southern California.
Waffle is the fourth puppy we raised for Guide Dogs for the Blind. She was what is known as a starter pup. We only had her until she was seven months old. Then Waffle transferred to a high school student to finish raising as part of a class on service animals. In July GDB decided that Waffle would not be a guide dog and she has returned to GDB for a community placement. Waffle was partnered on August 31, 2012 and now travels with her for work.
Casey is our third puppy from Guide Dogs for the Blind. She graduated from GDB’s Boring, Oregon campus on June 2, 2012 and now lives with her partner Carrie in British Columbia, Canada.
Banta is the second puppy we raised for Guide Dogs for the Blind. After being released from the breeding program she graduated from the San Rafael, California campus in May of 2011 as a guide dog. Mark and Banta live in the Denver, Colorado area.
Apex is the very first puppy we raised for Guide Dogs for the Blind. He graduated from the Oregon campus in Boring in January 2010 as a guide dog. Apex and Sue live Florida.
