Pick up day, December 27, 2013. I am the lucky one to home FLD Bear until he heads up to his official raiser in the Baraga Correctional Facility in January. (Yep, I get the middle-of-the-night parking duty!)
|FLD Bear! The hand-off at Leader Dogs for the Blind.|
Bear gives me a lick, and my husband, Andy, too.
Do you think Bear is going to like beards?
Of course, we had to take the usual picture of Bear next to the statue in front of the Leader Dog kennel building!
|There was so much salt on the ground I didn't want to put little Bear down. He seemed perfectly happy to stay snuggled in my arms!|
|Sleeping on the way north.|
|FLD Bear likes to play!|
|What a cutie-patootie! We're working on Bear learning his name. He sure likes to "sit" for attention!|
|He is such a little guy!|
So far, FLD Bear has been a real gem. When cc'd Gus greeted him, Bear thought he was back with his mommy and went right after his belly. Gus leapt up and away. I'm not your mommy!
Gypsy has been giving Bear a wide berth.
First night report: Last "park" at 11:00 pm, a little squawk at 3:38 am. Outside for a quick park and back to bed until Andy got up about 6:00 am.
Play, park, sleep. Park, eat, park, play, sleep. Ah, the life of a puppy!
