Happy 3rd Birthday Syesha!

Well as you may have guessed from my post yesterday about Glimmer, I was going to mention Syesha. Syesha was our 4th puppy we raised and was one of our former dogs' puppies (Glimmer). Glimmer and Syesha are two years and one day apart. That always helps us remember their information when filling out their puppy reports.

Syesha was such a pleasure. She was a little spitfire. I often look at photo's of Syesha and see Halette. They share the same love of life. You can see it in their eyes. They remind me so much of each other even though they are the farthest from being related than any of our other labs have been.

We had the best time raising Syesha. Today she is a working guide in San Francisco. You can read Syesha's introduction here, http://growingaguidedog.blogspot.com/2010/06/my-grand-dog-syesha.html

Happy Birthday Glimmer

Some of you may be wondering who in the world Glimmer is. Glimmer was our second puppy we raised and today she has turned 5 years old. She was our first success, our only (so far) to make it into Guide Dogs breeding program and she gave Jarett, me and others another wonderful gift. Glimmer was placed with a wonderful family that over the years we have lost contact with. As far as I know she had three litters. S, K and O. I hope she is somewhere enjoying herself today. If you would like to read Glimmers introduction you can here http://growingaguidedog.blogspot.com/2010/06/along-came-glimmer.html

and to see how else Glimmer effected our lives tune in tomorrow.

Hello There!

I along with Jarett have raised 6 guide dog pups. We are currently raising pup # 7. These are our stories, our adventures, our experiences. Please follow us and watch our pups grow into their paws and from jacket into harness. Feel free to leave a comment. We enjoy hearing what you have to say.
