Medford's "A" pups

3 months old

Its hard to believe Andrew is 3 months old today! So to celebrate him being 3 months old im going to list 3 things i love about andrew.

1. I love his cute face. His face is so adorable its hard to stay mad at him.

2. I love his confidence. Andrew is a confident boy which makes doing stuff with him fun

3. I love that hes a grandpup. I can already see ways andrew and medford are alike.

So now that ive had time to process the fact that medford is two and all the A litter is medford ive started to figure out how i feel about all this. To start i cant believe medford is 2 now i feel like yestersay i was picking up this furball to take home now that furball is a dad. I was sad that medford wasnt with me to celebrate his 2nd birthday however the more i thought about it the more i realized that i could be sad about not having him or i could be happy that hes with a family who loves him a lot and enjoys spoiling him as much as i did. I decided i needed to be happy for him cause his feelings were always the most important thing to me. Not only was yesterday meds birthday but i found out that the entire A litter was medfords. Im over the moon that medford was the dad. I had a feeling andrew was medfords but i didnt expect all the pups to be medfords. I am looking forward to raising andrew who i can say for sure is a grandpup. It will be fun to see in what ways medford and andrew are alike but i will have to remind myself not to compare andrew and medford to much since they are two different dogs. Im sure ill get ftuserated with andrew at times and be like medford never did that but im sure as time goes on ill enjoy seeing the differences as well as simularities.

Great news

So along with it being medfords birthday we got the best news ever. As you might remember there were two sires used to produce the litter andrew was born in and a dna test was done to see who the dad is. Well we got the results today and..... ALL of the A pups are(drum roll).... MEDFORDS. That means Andrew is a medford pup. Im so happy that hes a medford pup id have loved him no matter what but now knowing hes medfords it makes him extra special. Way to go med producing 8 adorable pups!


Well to start i want to wish medford a happy 2nd birthday!! Cant believe my baby is two now! I am sure hes getting extra spoiled today. As i told my mom im sad i dont get to spend it with him but supper happy that even though i dont hes with a great family who loves him to death.

Andrews "big" outing

Ashley: well today Andrew went on his first "big" outing. It was still low keyed like the other outings weve done but this time it was longer than the others and he got exposed to new things. We first started by going to jonny rockets to eat lunch. I like to take my pups there for their first out to eat trip since they know me pretty well there and have no issue with my pups plus they bring you your food so you dont have to try to walk a baby puppy and carry a tray at the same time. Andrew did ok he was pretty wiggly but was good at staying under the table. After i ate we went outside and releaved him in the parking lot( since he doesnt have all his shots grass and dirt should be avoided unless in my backyard to avoid him getting parvo). We then went and walked around the market place ( its a small outdoor shoping center). There he got to expereince small amount of people walking by, people pushing shopping carts, automatic doors, and water fountains. He did great and he had no fear issues. After that we got in my car and went to pick up laundry my mom had dropped off yesterday at the laundry mat. This was the first time Andrew had gone he did great had no fear of the noises from washing machines or dryers that were on and walked nicely next to me when i pushed the cart with our clothes to my car and then back to the store. Right now we are working on how andrew greets people so ive made a no pet policy while in public till we can get his mouthing under control.

Andrew: Hey everyone im Andrew im a puppy in training to hopefully be a guide dog one day. My mom has decided to let me tell my side of the story on the blog so i cant wait to tell you about my fun adventures. Today started out with my mommy loading me into her car and us going to this place called jonny rockets. She made me go under the table and tried to get me to lay dpwn while she ate. For the most part i was wiggly i mean come on im a baby and theres all these yummy smells going around and people to meet right so dont know why she thinks i should lay down while she has fun. After that mommy took me to potty she made this big fuss over me for being a good boy and pottying in the parking lot. I mean really parents can be embaressing sometimes. After that mommy made me walk around this place called the market place not sure what a market place is but it seems fun lots of new things to see and smell. I tried to be cute so people would pet me but mommy said no something about me being to mouthy. Such a meany. We then went to puck up laundry mommy said i did really good there too. Now to take a nap. After all im a baby and just had a busy day.

Heres a question

So heres a question on the blog Adventures of a puppy raiser they ran into a woman who trained her dogs as a "service dogs" and wanted to buy them a cape to wear and they brought up a good question how do you respond to people who ask where they can get there pet a jacket so they can go out in public and how do you feel about people training their own service dogs

Catching up

So im sorry this is coming late. Youll have to forgive me as i was in Hawaii on vacation. But Andrew and i wanted to wish everyone a happy new years. Andrew went and stayed at another puppy raisers house while i was gone. Andrew got to go through puppy boot camp while there and learn that despite what he thinks hes not the alpha.andrew also grew some while i was gone. Hes no longer small and chubby but has grown to be longer and little taller and thinned out . He has his first eval with our cfr on monday to discuss few issues we need to work on with andrew. Ill post how it goes on monday. Also starting next post im going to try something different with the post. Im hoping to tell my view of things at the begining of the post and andrews view at the end. Id love feed back on what everyone thinks of this once i start. In the mean time enjoy new pictures of andrew.
