Meet Nicki: Our Guide Dog Puppy Raising Adventure Begins


Yesterday, I got a call from a leader in our local guide dog club, asking if I could take Nicki for a while.  Of course, I said yes! 

Nicki is almost 4 months old, and definitely has cute down pat.  She's super enthusiastic about eating.  I think she eats faster than Lucy the basset did, which I didn't think was caninely possible.  To her credit, though, she knows to wait until the "OK" is given. 

Right now, she is sleeping soundly in her crate, all tired out from the excitement of her moving day.  Over the upcoming days, weeks, and months,  she'll be sporting her green vest and learning how to behave in public places.  Look out world, here she comes! 

Thankful thought: I know that guide dog puppy raising is a service, but I'm feeling like the lucky one.  Thanks for service opportunities that are so fun!
