News on Watson!

For all of you out there who knew our 4th guide dog puppy, Watson, here is an exciting update. Watson just graduated as a guide dog this month. He will be living in Louisiana with a wonderful woman named Angela.

Angela tells us via email that she is an event planner. She and her husband have a big family and are very excited about Watson. She says that they have bonded strongly already. Watson is her first guide dog, before she used a cane. She seems very happy with her new partner.

A very big THANK YOU goes out to all of those poeple who supported us in raising Watson...our family, friends, co-workers and volunteers who resited the urge to pet, play and feed the puppy. Our hard work paid off...and you are a big part of the our in that statement. Thank you for sharing your time, home and patience with our little puppies.

The last puppy that we raised is doing well with Amanda, the wonderful raiser in Baltimore who is finishing him off. She tells me that he recently enjoyed camping at the beach. I hope to send along good news about him in a year or so.
