So I found out last week that some little girls will be missing out on the cutest, smartest yellow lab boy around. Rocky will be continuing his training as a guide dog, just not as a breeder candidate anymore. I kind of figured that he would not make it as a breeder since they have picked a ton of male labs in the last few months to be breeders. Since they don’t need that many boys in the breeding program, it was not a big surprise. However, I am extremely proud of my little Rocky for making in through puppy training and two months at school as a breeder candidate. It makes me happy to know that they thought Rocky was just as smart as I all ways knew he was. As much as I think that Rocky would have had adorable puppies, I personally don’t think he would enjoy the life of a breeder. His favorite times were when he was on the go, he loved going anywhere which would have not been possible as a breeder. Though there was someone who lives near Southeastern that wanted to be his breeder host if he made it, which I am very thankful for their offer! I am just happy that he is on the road to doing something that he loves! Whoever gets him will be extremely lucky to have such a great pup like Rocky.
The good news is that one day he will be an uncle. His sister Cassidy made it as a breeder, Cassie! The rest of his siblings are still in training and are doing great!
Speaking of Rocky, there was another picture of the Rock Star posted on twitter this week! It makes me so happy to know that he is doing well. He looks so grown up! It seems like a lot longer than two months since he went back!
A huge thank you to one of the most wonderful trainers in the world for taking this picture of Rocky!
The past few weeks have been crazy around here. I am thinking puppy sitting is a full time job! I have kept several pups in our group who all happen to be from the same litter. It is fun to see how different they can be! I will post some pictures later when I have a bit of time.
