I have had a pretty good feeling that Joe would be heading back to Southeastern Guide Dogs in July. I got an e-mail Monday confirming that he is on the IFT list for July. I also got all his IFT paperwork the other day, which he didn’t seem too happy about :)
“Not another neuter letter…I can’t look!”
“Okay, I will just give it a little sniff…”
“but I am not going to open it…”
“I can’t look… will someone read it to me”
Joe is ready for the next chapter in his life and I know he will do great in whatever career he picks.
“I’ve been accepted! College here I come!!!”
I am excited that I will be taking Joe down! Southeastern has started a new process on how they are taking puppies back called Guide Dog U. Instead of bring them in Monday-Thursday of a certain week, everyone is bringing them back on a Saturday morning. June was the first time they did it this way and I heard from several raisers how awesome it was and that it made giving up your puppy a little easier. I am excited to meet some fellow puppy raisers in person and, hopefully, our boys will be friends!
