Big Fat News



He's matched. He's going to be a guide dog. Guide Dog Lomax!

I can't tell you how excited and emotional I am right now, and how very proud of him I am, and how grateful that this moment -- which has been my fervent prayer since the day I first saw his happy little face on September 24, 2005 -- has finally come.

Of course, I'm about to leave for a weekend trip at the moment and can't pause to write my usual course of lengthy purple prose...but all of you have been so supportive of me throughout my time with Lomax, I had to tell you!

I'll have more news for you later this weekend or early next week, and I'll certainly post a million words and pictures after graduation a week from this Sunday.

Thanks in advance for the many comments that are certain to follow this post!

Thanks, everybody!! I'm thrilled beyond belief, and I know that next Sunday I'm going to be an absolute wreck and a total quivering pile of emotional Jell-O.

I wish you could all come to graduation!
