Pupdate – Yakira, Casey, Puppy Club and #7

Yakira is continuing her stead pace through training. She is in phase 4 this week. Keep it up sweet girl, we are cheering for you.

Guide Dog News, a quarterly publication of Guide Dogs for the Blind, in its News of Our Graduates section listed Casey’s handler, Carrie as this years recipient of Reach for the Stars Scholarship. Congrats to Carrie on this accomplishment.

Our local puppy club has gotten too big and this week was our last meeting together. We meet at the Cold Stone in South Jordan to see Frosty and the other candy windows along with enjoying a tasty ice cream treat. It was a wet evening but lots of fun.A new club is being formed and we will be part of it. It is going to be fun to see what it takes to organize a new puppy raising club. We need to pick a name for our club. Any suggestions?

Right now the new club only has 5 puppies but more our expected soon. It seems that GDB has too many puppies in the kennels and they are looking for raisers. So we decided yesterday to apply for our next puppy, #7! He/she may be a co-raise with my friend Lisa, but we decided it was a good time to add another puppy to the household even if she decides now is not the best time to co-raise a puppy. So puppy #7 could arrive, by plane, in just a few weeks.

    • Thanks! I hope I’m not being too crazy doubling up puppies again. But it feels right and I guess it takes a little bit of crazy to be a puppy raiser. I think he/she will come in January but no idea when. For sure the puppy is in the kennels in San Rafael. We never gotten a puppy at this time of year. I just realized it is going to be really, really cold get up in the middle of the night during the middle of winter. Yikes! He/she will probably be older and maybe he/she will sleep through the night really quick.
