Don Update!

Don's in phase 8 this week! It's getting so exciting and I couldn't be happier :) Go, Don, go! I know he's having a great time working in the busy SF streets, navigating around cars, and doing advanced guidework. and I think he'd make an awesome guide :)

I'm having a great time puppysitting Missy during the week. She is such a sweet little girl and has been doing so well. She already knows sit and just LOVES people. She follows us around the room and when I sit on the floor, she'll crawl into my lap. ahh how I love baby puppies :D I got to puppysit Silky a couple weeks ago and had a great time with her, too. And before that, I had Nougat for the holidays. I miss being a full time puppy raiser, but puppy sitting is great for now.
Sweet little 8 week old Missy. Don't you love her calm, loving expression? She is such a smart puppy.
Missy enjoyed playing with the Jollyball (Missy in a sit, with the Jollyball rope in her mouth).
It's hard to tell in these photos, but she is sooo tiny. She's been sleeping a lot and makes all these cute little puppy grunting noises.
Sweet Nougat- she did a great job at my house!
Unfortunately, I don't have any Silky pictures, but she was super good and went on an all day shopping trip with me!
and.. a post couldn't be complete without a picture of Don. Keep it up, big boy! I love you and I hope you know how proud I am of you :)

Samuel/Lani litter puppysittee!

I am no longer puppyless— for 3 weeks! As many of you know, Lani and Samuel had a litter. A raiser in our club is the breeder keeper for Samuel and just received her new pup. However, due to the Parvo outbreak at GDB (if you haven't heard about it, please view their website) their little girl has to be quarantined for 21 days... so, when her raiser goes to work during the week, I'm the lucky one who gets puppy breath :D :D I'll be writing a huge update about this little girl later tonight, but for now...

Welcome to Mt. Tam Guides MISSY!

(adorable pictures to come soon- this girl is so sweet and is just melting my heart... And at only 7 1/2 weeks she's doing DYB great. such a cuddle-bug I AM IN LOVE )
