Little Jonquil is, well....... growing up right before our eyes. Our monthly meeting was the usual. This month we did stair training. Fortunately, in the building where our meetings are held we have open backed stairs, which some dogs have an uncertainty over. Jonquil had just been exposed to these earlier in the week and didn't mind a bit.

Some of you must be thinking stairs shmares, what's the big deal? Well, we stepped it up a notch and had dogs at the top and bottom landings with they walked towards each other on the stairs. If all that makes any sense to anyone, then you know with some dogs this is a big deal.
I was so proud of my little Jonnie. She did great. She followed Jarett's pace and did well with the dog distraction.
We did wish Wella a Bone Voyage as she is returning to training later this month. I was asked to take photos so I didn't get any of my own. I did get a picture of Theta CC'd (YLF). She is around 8 and does a great job with training all those young'ins.
At the end of the meeting we let Jonquil and Jamayla play together. They were having a blast which is why none of the photos turned our clear.
Jonquil is the one without her jacket.

Well this is a bit late. So late that I am a tad embarrassed but am going to catch up. I want to get some of the old posts out of the way. So here is Jonquil with our Christmas tree that was officially taken down today. It was my favorite tree that J and I have had together. Mostly homemade ornaments and a few that reminded me of the ones I love. Jonquil really did not show any interest in the tree or ornaments. I am a little surprised, but joyfully so. Even though they are late, I thought they were too cute to not share. More updates to come.
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.
