A call to duty...

Tuesday, October 28, 2008


Today I want to dedicate my post to Winnie, the wonder lab!!! This past weekend Winnie left her family to move on to Guide Dog Boot Camp.  Winnie's family did such a pawsome job of taking care of her and teaching her right that she is now ready to start learning how to be a guide dog.  It's going to be a lot of hard work, but if anypup can do it, I know Winnie can.  One day some lucky pawson is going to be owned by Winnie...and I sure hope they know what a special girl-pup she is!!!  Good luck Winnie...I know you are going to be a star!

It was really hard for Winnie's family (especially her mom, Julie) to let her go. They are one super-special family to have dedicated the past year to help raise Winnie to be the bootiful and smart pup-girl that she is.  She is going to make the bestest guide dog ever...I just know it!  

Oh and Miss Julie...if you ever need some puppy love, just let me know and I'll be there with my nub-a-waggin!

Our best to Winnie the Wonder Girl Pup. She has the look of a very dedicated and compassionate companion. We are in awe of the family that is able to raise her and then let her go follow her destiny.

Hi Ruby,
Thanks for telling us about Winnie - she will make a great guide dog, I know it!
I am excited that we can be flying bug twins! :) It would be pawesome if we could go trick or treating together. And it's so cool that you are going to have the same fabric for your coat as me! We really can be twinnies now.
Love Clover xo
P.S. Thanks for the award! I am going to post about it soon. :)

I'm so glad that we met Winner through you, Ruby. She is one smart AND pretty pup!

I'm both sad and happy today, though. Sad that Winnie has to leave such a great family but happy that she is going to make another family happy. I'd love to be able to keep in touch with her!
