Puppy counselor Tammy delivered FLDs Bravo, Drummond and Granite to Leader Dogs for the Blind. She sent an email with the following "report."
I have attached the pictures and story of my trip to Leader Dog with Bravo, Drummond, and Granite. All three were wonderful travelers on our almost eight hour trek south (traffic and construction slowed us down). The guys should be proud of them. All three of them walked on nice loose leashes as I walked them from the van into Leader Dog. The staff at Leader Dog will take wonderful care of them. I am sure they are settling in nicely and have been spending some time playing together as well as with a few other dogs-maybe even some of their siblings.
GREAT JOB GUYS!!!!!
Since Bravo was in front, I decided to check him in first. We walked around a little and then I took him to meet the German Shepherd statue. I guess even dog statues need to have a proper greeting.
Bravo wasn't too sure about getting in the kennel even with some toys, a water dish, and his supper in there.
One of the dog care staff crawled in and soon he was in her lap. She was able to crawl back out and Bravo ate his dinner and tried out his new bed.
Granite came next. He also gave the Shepherd statue a proper greeting before he would sit beside him for his picture. Many of the staff remembered him and commented that he had grown up.
Granite walked right into his kennel, at dinner and settled on his new bed.
Finally, it was Drummond's turn. He had waited so patiently. He was very cautious and curious as we walked around a little bit before it was his turn to meet the statue.
Drummond had no problem entering his kennel. He checked out his toys, bed, water and his dinner which he ate slowly.
Once the Golden Boys were settled, I gave each one a hug and wished them well. I took a picture of their names on the wall and noted that Drummond's brother, Bruin, was in the same bay so I'm sure they will be playing together in the next few days! Now on to their next part of their journey. Dogspeed!
Thank you, Tammy, for the great report and taking such good care of the Golden Boys!
