How old am I?

Its time for me to go.....

I will miss all of my friends at the Forest Service, especially Susan. She takes me for lots of walks during the day and plays with me!I love our meetings. I get to show off AND visit my friends. How fun is that? This is me and Fred with the Middlemas twins.

On July 4th, we helped the church pass out water and have a craft booth for kids in Weaverville. All the kids love me - and the feeling is mutual!

I went one last time to visit all my friends at the Blue Ridge Group Home. They love it when I come by. I like it because they all want my kisses!

When my Mom B told the school how much I like to carry things, they said for her to let me take things and help out. I may get to do that for my partner. I'm VERY good at it. I'm always very careful not to hurt anything so my mom even let me carry her camera all the way down the stairs to the car!

I'm still a GREAT boy and am going to be going back to school very soon. Mom Libby and my Mom Barbara are kind of sad because they will miss me a lot. They thought it would be September before I had to leave, but they want us back early because they plan to choose a breeder from my litter. I'm going to try to make them very proud so they will keep smiling. I like to make them happy!

I appreciate everyone giving money so that I could come live in Asheville. I know Matthew is happy that I am here in his honor.

Its been a while....

OK, I've been REALLY bad and haven't posted anything in a LONG time! Blame my mom! I can't get her off the computer for enough time to write something. I'm sorry! I'm still working hard to be ready to go to guide dog college. My mom uses me in class to show all the other dogs how to act - that's what's going on in the picture here! Miss Georgie has me.

The pups all look up to me - as they should!

This is Astrid. She's a lab/golden mix.

My mom's son, Josh, is getting married in October. His fiancé has been doing mission work in Mexico for two years and came home in May. I got her some balloons and met her at the airport. It was a surprise and she was happy to see us because Josh was in Saudi Arabia and couldn't come.

Mom and I spoke to a bunch of kids at Carolina Day School in Asheville because Fred is going to be at school every day with them. Steve and his guide dog, Joe, spoke, too. Mom and I relaxed while they showed what I hope to be able to do soon. I like to be touching Mom all the time. She likes it, too!

All the pups went to the Asheville Tourists baseball game. I liked the people, but wasn't too thrilled about this big bear! I kept my distance from him, but finally sniffed him out.

After we got in our seats, I had a good time playing with Jordan.
Her mom didn't see us playing under the seat, but mom caught me and made me quit. *sigh*

I watched for a while, but then decided that Fred has the right idea!

We were asked to come back to the special Dog Day in the Park for the Tourists and set up a table to tell people all about guide dogs. As always, I was a perfect example of how good we all are!
