    We also have an English Lab - born March 29th of this year and her name is Molly. Our first Lab - and we just love her. Although she went thru a stage where I nicknamed her "Puddin' Brains". Are you raising Meadow to then become someone else's guide dog or will he be your own? I've often thought about volunteering to raise a guide dog.
    We are here to learn how to live in heaven - I'm still learning.

    We just received my husbands PTSD dog last thursday. He is not trained yet but will be training with my husband hopefully starting soon. I am so glad that you have such a handsome guy to help you.

    I am so happy for you to have such a wonderful guide and companion. She is beautiful and Labs are wonderful. I'm sure you will have greater feelings of freedom and safety now that you have her.
    God bless the both of you as He meets all our needs...

    Actually me because I still have sight and I need to learn to trust him to take me where it is safe to travel. I am doing great though. My trainer says that I am leaps and bounds ahead of anyone else that she has trained.

    Yes, He is a very handsome boy, I love him already and he is apart of the family. I want to say Thanks for raising the dogs for leader dogs it is a great thing that you do. I know how hard it must be for you to give them up. I am lucky the organization that I got him from is training him here right with me at home. The organization is called Occupaws, it is a small organization but the trainer is wonderful!
