Neiman receives his freedom today

Freedom is when your Guide Dog Puppy in Training receives his/her 16 week shots. This is a big deal for us. Now we can freely take the puppies with us on outings and walks.

Bus outing in Riverside 2/18/12

Today we went for on a bus outing from Eastvale to the Tyler Mall. Petey, Mermaid and Malibu all handled the bus ride like champs. We met up with Sheena, a working Guide Dog German Shepherd, on the way. Once we got to the mall we headed straight for the food court for lunch.

Today was also Petey’s birthday. He is now 1 year old.

Puppies for Freedom puppy meeting 1/7/12 with Rick

It’s always fun when Rick (our CFR) comes to our meetings. We learn so much from him. This time the older puppies were being looked at for their progress before being recalled back to GDB. We walked from Applebee’s in Riverside around the shopping center including a trip into the pet store. Rick tempted the pups with toys and bouncing balls. He also noise reactions as the puppies walked past signs and dumpsters. Everyone did well. I was concerned about Petey as he is a little sensitive – not this time. He handled it with confidence.

We had a guest attending. Hooper, a working guide dog I raised, was visiting in Riverside. So good to see him and hear his stories. Of course, Carol gave him an excellent report.

Puppy meeting at Tom’s Farm 11/20/11

We got together today at Tom’s Farm for a Puppies 4 Freedom meeting. Armand, Malibu and Petey attended. First we walked through the furniture store to see all of the Christmas directions. They were showing decorated Christmas Trees – what made them special was that they were upside down. Kind of a cool idea.
