Life as we know it...

Well, life as I know it is going to be changing for me in the next few weeks--no pictures right now, but I'll post pictures in the next day or two...

First, Ontario is going to be moving to Tucson, AZ. I never imagined that I would give him up...AGAIN...but indeed I will be giving him to somebody and he will no longer be living with me as my pet :( I don't quite know what to say about this! I am going to miss him more than I can even imagine at this point, but I know this is what his new mom needs and I know he will be extremely well cared for and loved--could I ask for anything more for him??? He's such a great dog and has brought so much happiness and joy to my life in the 2 years I've had him...I guess now it's time for him to do the same for his new mom. I know I will still hear about him and see him, but it is wierd to think that he will no longer be "mine".

Second, Edie had an evaluation with our CFR yesterday and passed with flying colors! She is a wonderful girl and I didn't expect anything less than to show our CFR how amazing she is...and Edie was amazing and pretty near perfect. So what does this mean??? This means that Edie is ready for the next step...she is ready to go to training to learn to be a guide dog! She will be going on the puppy truck to San Rafael on June 3. When I got her, I was told I was getting a naughty dog (my favorite), however, Edie has NEVER been a naughty girl for me. She is a sweet dog with a great personality who just wants to do what people ask her to do and get some lovin' in along with doing what she is supposed to do. She has been the PERFECT dog for me! I love this little girl and am going to miss her, but am excited for her to go to training and do what she was born to do!

And...

Third, there are 11 more days of school and then I will have survived my first year as a teacher...but who's counting???

Wow, lots of changes going on...best of luck to Ontario and Edie as they move on - they'll definitely be missed, but I can't wait to hear all about how they're doing!
Congrats on almost being done your first teaching year, that's so exciting! Almost as exciting as three months of summmer lol
Are you going to be getting a new puppy?

Wow! Big changes, I am sorry to see Ontario go, but I am sure he will be the perfect dog for his new mom. Yay for Edie! Will you be getting a new puppy or transfer dog on this truck?

First off, congratulations on surviving as a teacher!!

It will be sad to have Ontario gone, but he will have a great time with his new mom. Edie was always wonderful at our house and will do great in training.

I can't wait to meet your next puppy/transfer dog! New dogs are always so much fun!

Hey! The first year of teaching is always the hardest. You made it! Wow...you are making some big changes. Rehoming your pointed-eared shepherd and sending Miss (perfect) Edie back for training. Will you be dogless this summer at Camp B? What else do you have in store... Can't wait to hear of your next adventure.
