It's hard to believe that Drexel is only two years old. Drexel came to us from Guide Dogs for the Blind as a young puppy. We were raising him to be a guide dog, but he had other plans. He "career-changed" due to scent distraction. He just couldn't seem to keep his mind on working when there was a smell to distract him. We were asked if we wanted to keep him as a pet, and we readily agreed. He is a wonderful family dog.
Here's a look back over the past couple of years:

|There's a reason we call him "Drexel the Adorable."

|Returning (on Valentine's Day!) for formal guide dog training
|Flying off the puppy truck to return home to stay
|Now Drexel helps other Guide Dog puppies learn good house manners.
Thankful thought: I'm thankful for Drexel, and for the Guide Dog for the Blind organization.
