I was flipping channels waiting for the Simpsons to come on and I caught a news clip about two black labs going to war. What! I said no way, but I realized they were being sent over to Iraq as therapy dogs to work with soldiers. Apparently the program has been very successful here in the states and the Army wanted to see if they could replicate the same services overseas.
The Pups come from Guide Dog Foundation in New York, two beautiful Black Labs Boe and Budge. So a big shout out to Rei and Midnight and GDF for all their hard work. It sounds like they were trained to be guides but were shifted over to the Am Vets program. GDB has something like that with Dogs for Diabetics. It is nice to see that there is still work for them even if they don't make it as guides.
Here is the article
here is the link to the web site.
Afte struggling with blogger, finally was able to up load the video I took whe we dropped her off at San Rafae. Here she is meeting her new friends, She seems to really be excited about having doggy friends to play with. You can tell by her tail that she is happy.
So I remind my self that she will be ok.

She has been at GDB for almost two weeks now, 1st report came in today, and, as expected, she is still in Phase 1 and on breeder watch.
Not much will change until January. 'Tis her season, you know.

I'm sure everyone there is nice, and after we got her in her cell...ummm I mean kennel, she seemed pleased that there was another fun dog next door to her. I hope she gets a nice roomie. blogger is acting up, and I am having trouble putting up the video - so until I figure it out. here is a picture of her in her new home.
