About Me

I am a yellow female lab that was donated to the Southeastern Guide Dogs, Inc. I hope to one day become a seeing eye dog to give freedom to someone who cannot see.

In For Training (IFT)

By Beth

The time has come and Waffles will be heading back to Southeastern next week.  Raising Waffles has been a challenge and a tremendous joy.  I've tried so hard not to get attached knowing that she will be leaving me, but I have come to love her and a piece of my heart will go back with her.

I've seen her grow from this tiny puppy with more energy then she knew what to do with, to a mature dog who now channels that energy into her work.

The first several classes, I thought "this dog is never gonna make it,  She is so hyper and will not obey me especially in class".  I remember having to take her outside the obedience classes just so that she could be successful in learning the things she needs to learn.  As the months passed, she still got excited but would settle down and eventually do the obedience.  Now when we go to classes, I see how the other pups act just as she did and know that eventually they do grow up.  She is a sweet angel and still has a great deal of energy.

I know that in no matter what she does, she will be bring joy and life into wherever she goes.  I will truly miss her.  So in the next week, Waffles will be getting alot of extra loving as we prepare to send her off to do great things in this world.

Love, hugs and kisses,
Beth and family
