Officially "In for Training"

By now, I am sound asleep.  This will be my first night in the kennel as a GDA dog in for training.  Over the next couple of weeks, I will head over to the Vet's office.  They will make sure that I am fit to continue with my training.  If I am medically qualified, I will start my training and harness work.  I will keep in touch with you all by postcards.  They told me that training is really demanding, but that I will have some fun playtime when I am not working.  Hopefully, I will make it all the way to become someone's Guide!  Won't that be cool!  I can hardly wait!

I'm All Growed Up! Now What?

This is a week of "lasts".   Last visit with all the neat friends that I've made up here in Big Bear Lake, last walk by the lake, last car ride on the mountain...you get the idea.  Why all the "lasts"?  Well, it seems that I have made it to the next stage of my life as a Puppy In Training.  Saturday is "the day" that we all look forward to with mixed emotions.  You see, I am going back to the Guide Dog School.  I will be officially "In For Training" this Saturday.  I still get to talk to you all, through postcards that will keep you informed as to my progress.  But hopefully, in a little over six months, I will be graduating into my new career as a Guide Dog!

Thanks to all that have taken the time to stop in, we enjoyed sharing with all of you!  

Bye till next time, FENIX

My Brother Came to Visit!

It's been a long time since I have seen any of my brothers or sisters.  It seems that we all have gone our own ways of late.  But today I had a surprise visit from my brother Fletcher.  We had a wonderful time catching up on gossip.

One Last Trip to the Magic Kingdom

I don't know what I was thinking.  I picked the hottest day of the month to go for one last trip to Disneyland.  I managed to find a lot of shady spots, and kept cool anyway.  I found some of my favorite friends before it got too hot!

I'm Stuck in a Sea of Orange!

It's October!  That can mean only one thing.  I have to go to the place with all the pumpkins.  It's a fun place, lots of kids! And lots to do.
