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.

UPDATE: Waffles Medical Exam

By Beth

I just got the email on Waffles and her siblings, Judy, Hedy and Happy.  All passed their hip and elbow exams.  Judy will be starting the formal guide dog training soon. 

Waffles passed the medical exam with good hips and normal elbows.  At this point she is still a breeder candidate. 



What a ride!!!

Well I finally made it to my new home and boy was the ride long.   I've even had my first outting in my coat.  The coat is huge on me.  My new furraiser says that it swollows me and that I'm really tiny for 10 weeks old.  I think I'm perfect just the way I am.

My first night was fun.  I got to meet Max.  He is huge and a big meanie.  All he does is growl at me.  I just want to play and get to know him.  My furraiser keeps telling him to be nice and sometimes he will let me smell him but he definitely lets me know where my boundaries are.

I understand that there are these 2 other fur creatures in the house called cats.  I've only seen 1 of them and he is bigger than me....bol.  But who wants to play and be with cats.  yuck!!!!

My furraiser is going to go buy me some toys today so that I have something to chew on and keep me busy.  I think she needs to buy me some treats too....bol

Anyways, I'll keep you posted on my progress in my new home so until then...

Fur Friends Forever,

Fran is coming

By Beth

I will be getting my second puppy to raise this evening.  I don't know much about her except that she is a yellow female labrador donated to the school.  She is on her way here to Charlotte as of the writing of this post.  I'm not sure which of the yellow labs in the crate is Fran but we soon will find out.  We are excited and anxious to meet our new house mate.

New Arrival Coming Soon

by Beth

Once again, I will soon be welcoming a new bundle of fur to my home.  Although I had initially wanted to wait until after the holidays to raise another puppy, the overwhelming desire and the hole in my heart left by Waffles leaving has made it difficult for me to say no to another puppy.

I don't have a name yet that I can share but I'm sure nonetheless, she will definitely live up to whatever name the school had chosen for her.  She arrives November 28th and I'm sure to take lots of pictures and post a page for upon her arrival.

Until then, hugs and wet doggie kisses,
