FLD Dax meets the teams

March 7, 2014
Baraga

Before Tammy gets the group working their puppies, Chad brings FLD Dax around the room to meet everyone. Pups included!

There are three men in the foreground dressed in blue prison  uniforms. The one on the left is kneeling on his right knee and is holding a black lab puppy back from reaching toward a smaller german shepherd puppy being held by a man on the right, he is squatting down and looking up toward someone out of range of the camera to the left. Both puppies have their feet on the painted cement floor. A third man is sitting on a stool between the other two men and he is looking down toward the puppies. There are two men sitting down in the background.
FLD Bear, meet FLD Dax! Raiser Ricky holds an eager Bear from engaging with Dax.

One thing leads to another...we need a photo of the newest addition with his team.

Three men dressed in prison blue uniforms sit side by side on lunchroom stools. The man on the left has his forearms on his knees and is wearing a blue baseball hat, he is smilling at the camera. The man in the middle is holding the leash of a small german shephard puppy who is sitting between his feet on the floor. The man is holding the blue Future Leader Dog blue bandana in is right hand hanging down next to the puppy. This man is grinning at the camera. The man on the right also has his forearms on his knees and he is looking at the puppy. There are a few men in the background.

"Can you take our photo too?" the others ask. I am so far behind on posting the guys are anxious for me to get pictures up here for their families to see. At long last, here are a few.

Three men dressed in prison blue uniforms gather around a young black lab puppy. The man on the left is holding the puppy in his left arm, his hand cradles the pup's chest. The puppy is wearing the blue Future Leader Dog bandana and is looking at the camera, as is the man. The man in the middle is sitting on the other side of the metal table, leaning on his right elbow. He is looking at the camera. The man on the right has his right arm draped on the talbe and he is looking at the puppy with a big grin on his face. There is a mural painted on the wall behind them, it is a scene of mountains, grass and water.
FLD Copo and his team, from left to right Harvey, Ryan and Luke.
A yellow lab puppy is sitting on a grey "mat" between the feet of a man who is sitting on a lunchroom stool. The man is holding the puppy's leash in his left hand and his left forearm is resting on the metal table top. The man's right hand is reaching down to pet the pup's head. The puppy is wearing a blue bandana. The man is looking down at the pup. Behind the man is an african american man sitting at the table. He is wearing glasses and has his forearms resting on the table. On the right side of the picture is a third man who is sitting facing out from the end of the table, his forearms are resting on his thighs and he is looking over at thepuppy. He has a pair of glasses on the top of his head. There is a dog nylabone and a red folder on the talbe. The men are wearing the blue prison uniforms.

Three men are squatting in front of a steel wall on a tile floor. A young black lab puppy is sitting in front of the middle man, looking at the camera. The puppy is wearing a blue Future Leader  dog bandana. The men have their arms resting on their knees and are smiling at the camera. The man on the right is an african american and is wearing glasses.

Three men are standing in front of a steel wall. They are wearing prison blue uniforms. The middle man is cradling a young black lab in his left arm with a leather leash hanging down. The men on either side have their hands folded in front of themselves. The men are all smiling at the camera.
FLD Copo again, with his team.


So, we decided that a group photo would do.

A group shot of 18 men dressed in prison blue uniforms. Six of the men are kneeling or squatting down in front of the  others. There is a golden retriever and a yellow lab sitting in the front row. Three men in the back row are holding a black lab, a german shepherd and a black lab puppy. Everyone looks very happy!
