I'm Not Dead!

I'm sorry my blog has been so boring lately- school's been crazy busy and there's not much dog news.

I heard from Fielder's partner a couple more times, and he's doing very well. They're bonding extremely quickly and he's being a good little worker.

I still have several posts to write up from months ago- when Fielder came home for Christmas we went on some pretty sweet adventures, so I promise I'll get around to those soon.

For now, I'll leave you the link to one of our friend's new blog- she's a dogguide (CVC) handler with a lab from DGC and she's also puppyraising for Autism Dog Services...go check it out at Ruled By Paws!

Fielder Update!

I am absolutely over the moon happy with Fielder's new "person". She has already emailed me TWICE and promised pictures in the mail sometime after they are developed!!!!

They have been working a lot on soundwork and obedience and are bonding very well. Her entire family loves him, and it sounds like my little man is having the time of his life!

The part that made me the most proud though, was when she told me that her building had tested its fire alarm, something she was not informed of, but Fielder alerted her right away and turned in circles when he heard it, and they got out in good time. Little poofy walked down 199 stairs "like a trooper" and was rewarded with playtime outside.

Just reading these emails make me so proud of Fielder and so happy for him and his new partner. She reassured me that he would go with her everywhere because she already felt like he was an extension of her. Honestly, I am just so ecstatic and relieved now, I don't even know what to say.

Looks like Fieldypoo did indeed end up exactly where he belongs.
