Welcome the the sometimes big and sometimes not so big adventures of raising a guide dog. This is Waffle she is a 12 month female black lab from Guide Dogs for the Blind in San Rafael California.
It's hard to get a good photo of a black dog so we were very pleased by this photo. It was taken at the Girl Scout camp where we spent the summer, me working as the head chef and Waffle as head of morale. A job that she took very seriously spending countless hours distributing kisses and cuddles to whom ever happened to be passing by (especially if they were wearing sunscreen.)
This is her favorite toy a jolly ball of which she owns three
Waffle has a lot of friends, we call them her cousins, she has quite a few. This picture is of one of them, his name is Martinez he is only 6 months old --but he is just as big as she is and guaranteed to get bigger.
