Day 1 of 2 dogs

Well today was my first day having both Medford and wilbur. Started out with me getting medford back from the puppy sitter at our meeting. Since I couldnt work both dogs i started out with working medford while someone else worked Wilbur and then after a while switched and had wilbur while someone else had Medford. After that We went back to my appartment. I tried to let them play together, but the got little out of hand so they had to be seperated. guess im going to have to work on the 2 getting along while loose. I also gave each boy 15 minutes of time alone with me so that they dont get jealous of eachother. This should be interesting since both are big time mama boys. All I know is I am worn out from today.

14 months old and wilbur update

Well its a little bit late but Medford is now 14 months old! it is hard to believe. Now that he is 14 months old it is only a matter of time till we get notice of Medfords recall. Time has flown by with him and I know i will miss him a lot when the day comes to return him. He has come a long way since I got him.
Also this past weekend we got a call saying that there is a good chance that we will be able to get wilbur back this coming friday. Its taken a while because they were trying to find a flight that could fly him cargo from oregon to san fransisco and at a convenient time. well they kinda realized that the planes that could fly him cargo were really only leaving early in the morning. so the plan is that they are going to fly him cargo if they can find someone from the campus who is willing to drop him off early in the morning at the airport on wednesday. then on friday my mom and I will drive to the san rafael campus to pick him up. fingers crossed that we get the call saying everything is a go cause i don't want to wait any longer.

take me out to the ball game

Last night Medford and I did a first. We joined my guide dog leader Mary, her husband, and her guide dog puppy Preston at a Fresno state baseball game. Medford did really good he was little excited at first because he saw Preston, but after a while settled in. He really enjoyed putting his head on the seat in front of us and watching the game. Both dogs were a big hit at the game, and got lot of attention.

Well it has been decided I will no longer be getting a golden pup or cross anymore, but instead will be getting a male yellow lab puppy. some things came up that make getting a golden puppy or cross not a good idea for me. I am dissapointed but I am sure that I will fall in love with this puppy anyways. Now to wait to hear when Medford goes back cause Ill be be getting the puppy that day, and we will wait to hear what the bday is who the parents are and all the other fun info.

snow trip




medford chasing hobbs


Eating snow

rolling in the snow

Today Medford got to have a really fun day. Medford and I joined Kimberly and her guide dog puppy hobbs for a trip to the snow. Medford has been to the snow before, but this was Hobbs first time. As soon as Medford saw the snow he ran into it all excited. We kept both dogs on flex leashes. Both dogs enjoyed chasing each other and eating the snow. By the end of the trip both puppies were worn out.

puppy news

well i guess with every good news comes bad news(well sorta bad). I was told back in january that there was a possibility that i would be getting a golden pup in april to have my friend kim start for me. Well my friend kim just got a call and informed me that there would be no goldens ready till like june. We have told them we would wait till june or july to get a golden puppy. If not our 2nd choice would be a cross (one that is more golden), and as a last resort if neither of those two can work out a male yellow lab puppy in may/june. so hopefully we will here soon about everything. the good news is wilbur should be home in a few weeks. yay! ill update when i know whats going to happen. fingers crossed i get a golden ive been wanting one for long time but timing never worked out.
