Deb meets Jeb II

Deb made the trek out West to the mile high city of Denver to meet Jeb II and Marianne, another VPR for Canine Companions for Independence.
Although Jeb II didn't quite resemble Jeb the Original, he sure did like the hedgehog (Jeb's favorite toy)!

Here's Jeb II in all his regal-ness!

and here's the Famous Great Dane Meryl, who is in Marianne's book: "Let the Dogs Speak"

I'm pretty sure the cat is yelling "get off me you goliath"

Huge thanks to John and Marianne for hosting Deb and letting her meet your great dogs. I just wish I could have been there.

No Rumor Pups in Kansas

Got the news today that the North Central Region was not allocated any Rumor pups. We are disappointed, but are now working on getting a puppy as soon as we can. Puppy withdrawal is horrible!

We still have Mr.Wiggles going strong though.

Carver's April Report

Mr. Wiggles is still hanging tough in advanced training!

His trainer wrote:

"Carver is doing really well.  Not many concerns just things we watch: rough play with dogs, hoarding toys, slight distraction, and he likes to walk ahead of the wheelchair.  He is easy to  manage.  He takes correction well and is very verbally responsive.  There is not much to report he is doing everything we want to see at this point.  He is a nice dog."

I just don't know where he got the rough play!!!

Rumor's Pups

The final tally is in! Way To Go Rumor!!

"The final headcount is seven puppies! Four black boys and three yellow girls! Mom and puppies are resting and nursing happily. Rumor is an amazing mom! I don't think that this could have been easier for the humans."

Next in line

We are watching our next (hopefully) puppy being born today! Rumor, who we found out is related back to Jeb's Dad, is currently birthing the next little miracles! Rumor's breeder/caretaker has been posting updates all afternoon. As of this post, there are 3 yellow females and 3 black males. Hopefully, we will be getting one of these pups!
