Puppy Update

FLD Gus attended his first "Foundations Puppy Class" at Leader Dogs for the Blind last night.  We worked on name recognition, loose-leash heel, and sit.  Gus and I have a long way to go, but we have a good start!  (Gus weighed in at 13.5 pounds!  When we picked him up, he was 11 pounds.  Growing fast!)

I also learned that FLD Mike passed his physicals  (yippee!) and is adjusting well to life at Leader Dogs.  He starts Phase One training next week.

Keeping our paws crossed!


  1. Sounds like both your boys are doing well!!

  2. Yes, Erin, thanks! Also a neat coincidence--FLD Gus's brother, a yellow lab named Raphael, is in our puppy class. Raphael is being raised by the family that hosts Sy, the father of Gus and Raphael! Very fun to be so connected!
