Notre Fidele Ami

Patriot is one year old today, he weighed in at 81 pounds and measured 24 inches at the shoulder.
Patriot received a birthday card from the School along with his letter from Southeastern Guide Dog School to report on December 10, 2011 to Guide Dog U as part of the freshman class.  He will begin his formal harness training at that time.

Patriot has become a big part of our family! Our focus has always been  on the end results and we know he is going to be a wonderful dog for his forever person.  It is a bittersweet time for us!

Where has October gone? We've been busy with outings, obedience classes, and just out experiencing new things.  Here are some of our photos taken this month.

Practice, Practice, Practice

Good experience! He did well!

Dinner with the Golf League

Thursday is Golf day

I was asked by some in our golf group to teach Patriot to retrieve golf balls that had gone out of bounds.  I passed on that idea :)

For the next 42 days,we are going to relish every moment we spend with our sweet boy.  He is so sweet, he even wags his tail while he special is that!
