    DefaultHeard from Leader Dog about Seamus' first batch of puppies

    He still has another couple of batches that are still out with their foster homes.

    The first litter to Ginger has been going through training with some already graduated. When the entire litter is complete, I will send you an official update with photos of graduates but until then the results as they stand today are:

    Libby – Excellent hips, normal elbows – fully trained, waiting for the right student

    Beulah – Excellent hips, normal elbows – trained for our deaf/blind program. May get issued to a student on Wednesday.

    Skye – Good hips, normal elbows – may get issued to a student on Wednesday

    Hawkeye – Good hips, normal elbows – graduated and went to Minnesota

    Prince – Excellent hips, normal elbows – career changed for being unable to adjust

    Colten – Good hips, normal elbows – graduated and went to Spain

    Manny – Excellent hips, normal elbows – career changed for being too nervous when placed with a blind person

    So….the health is very strong as you can see and it looks like there is going to be a high level of graduates!



    Good boy Shamie!!!

    Excellent!!! How old is this "batch" now? ;D

    career changed for being unable to adjust
    What does that mean? Career changed to what? I thought if they were unable to adjust they were placed in a pet home.

    Very impressive! How can one get on a list to get one that has to be placed in a pet home?

    That's exactly what a career change is Amy. They have long waiting lists for their "wash outs" to put it bluntly. LOL Apparently he wasn't able to adjust to being with a blind person. Sometimes blind people are a bit grabby since they tend to "see" things by feel.

    They're excited about Jakey boy too.

    That's what I thought. My friend does fostering for seeing eye pups and she's always waiting to hear whether or not they "made it". She usually gets first dibs if they don't. She's got a Golden that didn't make it.

    You contact them Jackie. There is like a 4-5 year wait though.

    Can knowing Ms Labby herself get me to the front of the line for Manny?

    Ooh, look, Laura. You seem to have dropped this $20 bill. No, really! I saw it fall out of your pocket! Honest!
