How cool is this?

Leader Dog Scout and her partner, Kim, from Wisconsin.


We had the privilege of meeting Kim tonight at the Polk Residence at Leader Dogs for the Blind. Kim is two weeks into a three and a half week stay at the facility, learning to work as a team with his first ever guide dog. Yep, that would be Scout, the puppy I raised!

Andy and I stand behind my niece Natalie, who is sitting next to LD Scout and Kim.


When strangers see me with my Future Leader Dog puppies they frequently ask, "How can you give them up?" I wish they could witness the completed circle. If they could see the difference that our special puppy will make in the life of another human being, they wouldn't even think to ask such a question.

Me and Kim, with LD Scout. This is how.

  2. ALL of them are special in their own way, as you so well know Patti. Even Gus, and his buddy Molly who wash.....uh, were career changed, are special. I feel for Gus now that he doesn't have Scout to contend with! Who's going to help him with all those sticks and logs that need to be "moved".

    1. Oh, for sure, Bob! Wasn't taking anything away from any of them, not the least Mr. Gus...just think that making it as a Leader Dog is more about the puppy than the raiser! Gus is probably missing Scout, but Dutch is sure giving Gus a run for his money, even if he isn't helping him move logs. Oh they are SO much fun.
