Well, I'm back from my blogging hiatus. I have photos and tales from a bunch of puppysitting I did back in September and October, with which I will regale you in good time.

Meanwhile, the latest news: I attended the annual GDA Christmas party potluck today. Good food, billions of dogs! It was nice to be able to walk around and say hello to all my human and puppy friends, and it was weird knowing that Lomax was just down at the kennels with Liam and Nevada and his other "classmates." I hear the boys are doing well, so while I would of course have loved to see him, it didn't bother me too much that I couldn't. The longer he's in there, the closer he is to graduation. Still keeping your paws crossed for us out there?

I didn't take too many photos while I was there -- there's only so much you can do with a camera when your other hand is shoving cookies in your mouth, after all -- but here are some happy shots of Joanna and Chandler!

Look how CUTE he is!!!! :) I especially love the beautiful pee marks he left everywhere. I thought it was a present especially for me. :)

Christina asked me if we got to see Lomax today. I said no, but then I imagined all the happy people that would be thrilled to see him!! I just told her to wait a few months, then she'll see him at graduation. :)

Awwww Joandler! Sooo cute!

p.s. Jenny- it's okay, i totally would've replaced the picture taking with shoving cookies into my mouth too :) haha

p.p.s we met a GDB guidedog at the mall today!!!! She graduated from the SR campus like, 4-6 years ago i think :)

Yes, Chandler is quite the world champion piddler!

And Nat, that is so cool! You just never know who you'll run into at the mall, huh? I know GDA has some working guides up in Canada, too, so if you ever see a guide in a black and white harness, that's probably one of ours!
