Hooper is the one with the collar

Introducing ----- HOOPER!!

This is Hooper, male, yellow lab, born 7.3.07. His parents are Denzel and Vonnie. Hooper's brother Haggarty is also in our group. If you have a sibling or know of one, please let me know.

We are proud of you Elbert

Good luck to Elbert in the next phase of his life. Off to GDB to begin his formal training. I know he is going to do a good job!! I will keep you all posted on his progress.

Elbert is in his kennel for the trip back to "college" and Hooper is finding out he has a tough act to follow.

People ask me how the puppies get back to Guide Dogs and what is this truck like. Well, let me tell you, it is first class travel.

Saying Good-bye

Jonati and Niobi came to visit. Well, Jonati is BLIND and fell into the pool (not to worry, she loves to swim). That started the water fun. Elbert is not crazy about swimming - he will go in if carried in. Both Jonati and Niobi are now therapy dogs (Delta dogs).

Elbert and Elsa

We had a Guide Dog puppy event at the Hollywood Bowl last Saturday night. This was Elbert's first event last year and his last event before going back to GDB. We saw his sister Elsa there - she is so cute. She will be going back to GDB this weekend too. Good luck to the whole family!!!
