Big News

Just a short post with some big news!

I have been accepted into guide dog school! That’s right my friends, pretty soon I will be marching to the beat of a furry, four legged drum. Or, in other words, I will have the keys to a “Mercedes” complete with fur trim.

I will be heading off to school in late August for three weeks, where I will get my teammate and learn to work with my new friend. It’s a good 6 months from now, which will give me time to mentally prepare, as well as get my ducks in a row around here, including working out a solution to deal with my lovely allergies, seeing as there will be two dandy dander-producers in the house (aside from the human ones).

Anyway, there is always much more to tell, but I just wanted to let everyone know of my news!

  1. So happy for you !! It will go fast, before you know it,you will have a new member of the family. We are on dog # five, in 41 yrs. three of which were(are) labs. We had two together at one point, a yellow and a black, my husband loves them more then he loves me.(no kidding) (LOL)
    All the best in your preparations. Marion

    1. lol, I’m sure that’s not true. I know, six months seems like a long time now, but time flies so fast nowdays. I can’t believe we’ll be in mid march next week. Crazy stuff. I never realized labs were so smart until I met a few guide dogs a d started researching. very loyal too.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, it’s a lot to wrap my mind around mentally. It’s almost like getting ready for a baby (even though it’s not at all like a baby). I know my life is going to change in a big way and the uncertainty is a lot to think about. But, even though change is scary, once it happens, I always grow and adapt well.

  2. Great news! Keep us posted on the progress.
    BTW Dr Leys said to tell you hello. She remembered as soon as I mentioned your name 🙂
