Are you ready for some pictures??? Ontario is doing very well...he is now 14 weeks old and 26 pounds. He has moved from the small to the medium puppy coat last week! I don't think he's going to be a little boy. There are also a few pictures of O'Connor for your viewing pleasure :) He has not been dropped from GDB, but I haven't heard anything else on him...he should show up on the phase report this week.

This first picture is of O'Connor with one of my students. He was very good for her and she loved him, so on his last day at work we had to take a picture of him with her walking him!

This next picture is O'Connor and Ontario chewing on bones. They were very good together! Ontario and I miss O'Connor

HERE'S ONTARIO!!! These next two pictures were taken last night at my parents house. His face has lightened up quite a bit since that first week that I had him.

O'Connor is a College Boy

O'Connor and I went to Oregon for Sonny's graduation, as well as to turn O'Connor in for his college days! O'Connor got to fly in an airplane and he was fabulous and gained many fans while in the air. He quickly made friends with my Oregon relatives, many of whom don't like dogs at all...but EVERYBODY loves O'Connor! We went to Downtown Portland and he got to do the river walk on both sides of the river, and we went shopping in several different malls, we went to many restaurants as well. On Monday (two days before I left him on campus) we went to the Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Oregon, and took some great pictures of O'Connor in the Tulips! He was such a great sport and I got some great pictures...We went to the Japanese Garden, but it was raining hard while we were there, not so good for pictures. I returned O'Connor to the Oregon campus in the evening of Wednesday, April 11th. Fingers are crossed that he will be a WONDERFUL guide dog! He's definately the best puppy I have raised so far and has the best personality. Everybody who meets him falls in love with him!

Sonny is a Guide Dog!!!!

Sonny graduated on April 7th from the OR campus of GDB. He went to a wonderful man who lives in Seattle and completely adores him! :) Graduation day was awsome! Sonny was very excited to see me and jumped all over me! (naughty dog...but can you blame him? I was his mommy for 16 months!) Anyway, Sonny looked wonderful and he was still very excitable, however, he was very nice in harness and when his handler got serious and it was time for work, Sonny worked excellent and was VERY proud of his work too! :) My friend took lots of pictures, so I have to get the pictures from her, and then I will post them on here :) But just for is a picture of the boy when he was about 12 months old :)

Oh, Oh, Ontario

So, here are O'Connor and Ontario. Ontario was born Jan. 19, 2007. He is very cute and so far a great little guy! Below is a picture of him the day I got him. Notice how in only 2 days the ear is standing up straighter??? Doesn't he look like he's listening?
