This Little Boy Wants to BE a GUIDE DOG little boy has chosen his career and is IN CLASS!!!
I'll get to present him to his partner on March 8th, provided all goes well for them!

Best Buds...

They were sleeping like this, but of course when I decided I needed to take a picture and the flash went off...they both opened their eyes. They both sleep on long tie-downs and I only have 1 massive doggie bed in my they have to share. Usually Frisco takes up the bulk of the bed and Ontario settles with a corner, or just resting his head on the bed...goofy boys! Whatever works for them right? I have caught them curled up with each other both fitting on the bed, but can't catch that when my camera is ready. They are awesome and they really like each other!

Check out the boys!

I took these pictures today. They are such handsome boys!

Ontario LOVES to take naps in his kennel...even when he doesn't have to :)

Frisco is growing up fast! He's 4 1/2 months old and now wears a medium puppycoat!

First Trip

I am in Idaho with Frisco. This is the first time he has been out of Utah since arriving on Nov. 17th! He was amazing on the ride in the car up here. Once we got here (to visit my grandpa and aunt and uncle) we went to the party store that my aunt and uncle just bought. This is not a small party store, it is GINORMOUS! :) So we spent about 1 1/2 hours there looking at all the merchandise, walking around and talking to my aunt and uncle...Frisco did his best NOT to eat the junk that was on the floor! :) What a good boy he is!

Then we went with my mom and aunt to Albertsons to get some stuff for dinner, and Frisco was just as amazing there :) He sure is just the nicest dog. I love him a whole lot and he does so good in all situations.

We hung out with my 6 month old nephew when we got back to the house and Frisco was great with gentle and just sweet with him. Then Frisco saw the kitties...he has lived with cats at his other home, so it wasn't a big deal to him...and he's been great with the resident k9-Sara.

I didn't bring my camera, so we shall have to grace you with pictures another day!

PS. Ontario stayed with a puppysitter. He hasn't really been traded since Thanksgiving and he needed to have some time away from his beloved mommy ;) I dropped him off at another leaders house (he can only be traded to leaders) this morning, and I'll pick him up tomorrow afternoon/evening.

Pictures from Camp

So I was online looking at websites and found these pictures from Camp. They were taken on a day where we held a huge event at camp and several organizations (including GDB) came to help out...anyway...the first picture is GDB's booth. I don't really remember all the people, but the dogs are... from left to right... Silas, Ontario, Anya, Zephyr, Elsa and Eli.

And above is BEAUTIFUL baby Ontario (6 months)

A wonderful man

Since this is technically MY blog and not the dogs...I wanted to share something near and dear to my heart...

President Gordon B Hinckley passed away a week ago and his funeral was on Saturday. This man influenced my life for the better more than any other man...besides my own father. He was the Prophet of my church (kind of like the Pope, but different) and he was a WONDERFUL man. The world has lost a great leader...however it isn't all sad! In our church we believe that families are forever, and President Hinckley's wife died about 4 years ago. He never stopped missing her, and would often talk about her in his speeches...I know he is now with her again and I am happy for him!
