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.

Holiday Party

Early in January all the puppies and furraisers got together for our annual holiday party.  It's to celebrate Christmas and New Years.  All the pups were there and then some.  I had fun playing with all my siblings and all the others too.

We did a little obiedience training outside and it was really warm.  I didn't want to pay attention though.  How can they expect me to want to pay attention when all my friends are there???  My furraiser had to put me in the middle of the circle so that I could be successful at my commands.  I already know all this stuff, I just wanted to play.

After that the furraisers got to go inside and they all ate.  We even got a special doggie cake just for all of us.  It was so good, I ate mine in almost one bite...BOL.  They then did gifts for all the puppies.  I got "Happiest" puppy.  Of course!!!!  We all had photo ops then.  Below is a photo of all the pups currently in our group:

UPDATE: Waffles November Report

Waffles continues to do well in her training. 

The schools comments were:

Waffles is a sweet, energetic girl.  She has a great work pattern in indoor environments; however, she seems to be easily distracted and lacks confidence in outdoor environments.  We are working on building up her confidence and work ethic, as well as working on her harness discomfort.  She enjoys playing with her roommates in the play yard and seems to have springs in her feet.  She is a happy girl!

I always knew that she was a very "aware" girl.  She loved to see everything and wanted to know what was going on around her and be a part of it.  However, based on the scoring, she is still doing well.
