Fellow blogger L^2 (at Dog's Eye View), wants to give back to Guide Dogs of America, the organization that partnered her with Guide Dog Jack this year, so she's running an on-line auction to raise money to sponsor a puppy.  Her auction has over 60 really cool items on which to bid, including a "chap book" of puppy poetry and photography by ME!  There's still plenty of time to head on over and make your bid--the auction runs through Sunday, August 14 at 10:00 pm Central Time.  (L^2's first guide dog, LD Willow now retired, came from Leader Dogs for the Blind.)
Please visit L^2's on-line auction here:!

(at least that's what FLD Gus thinks)

Yesterday, while Andy visited the Ogemaw County Habitat for Humanity ReStore in West Branch, I worked FLD Gus up and down the main drag.  Loose leash heel, holding SIT, DOWN, and STAY each for 30 seconds, staying comfortable next to heavy traffic.  Believe it or not, West Branch is a busy place!

Even though there is only one traffic light in the downtown area, FLD Gus and I made the most of it.  Do you know how many times we crossed with the light within 45 minutes of walking through town?

More than a few (I think I can count six times).

On the drive home, FLD Gus took his usual position in the back seat.

Looks like FLD Gus is ready for the weekend.



  1. Gus looks tuckered out. While walking with Moxie yesterday someone decided to honk while we were walking forward toward traffic. Can you believe that? Some people!

  2. lol, yes, Gus was very tuckered out! Might have stemmed from our 2 mile jog in the morning before we went to West Branch. (Just to note, it's best to wait until your puppy is one year old before "running" with him!)

    Boy, I agree, some people--how did Moxie handle the horn? Probably just took it all in stride!

    Thanks for reading!

  3. Thanks for sharing the link to my auction. Jack and I are ready for the weekend too. :)

  4. My pleasure, L^2! Great job you are doing!

  5. I'm ready for the weekend too. :)
    PS: L^2 is amazing isn't she? I had her first! LOL just kidding

  6. Yes, TGIF! Love the post. :)
