I am so proud of this pro guide dog.

Well. Not gonna draw this out. But.
Amelia is a guide dog.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THAT’S RIGHT. My fluff ball that got passed around as a puppy has finished her training and has officially been living with her new handler for a week. I’ve known this was happening for over a month now but wasn’t allowed to share any info. She came to Athens to finish her training before her home placement so I was able to spend a few weekends with her. 
This experience was surreal. From the moment I got her, I imagined this moment but it always seemed so far away. I knew she’d do it. I knew it. 
I am lucky to have contact with her handler so will receive updates and pictures. 
So surreal. 
Now I tackle training with Stella, hoping that she has the same successes.
You did it Amelia Pond. Like a name in a fairytale.

Sooooooo, we love the neighbor’s corgi puppy

Last week Stella put her cuddling skills to work at the library for Reading to Dogs, a program that allows children to read to dogs to help with confidence (or simply for the joy). Stella was a little excited at first (especially since there was room full of dogs) but calmed down quickly and did a great job cuddling and encouraging kids to read stories. 
It was the cutest. So proud.

Wasabi turned two on the 2nd! So glad to she’s been in my life on and off for the past 2 years :D 

I knew she was going to be the biggest water dog. Hopefully April will bring some kayaking adventures!

Took the puppies down to the river to wear them out. Wasabi is no longer white.
