CCI Graduation Day

A quick post to my blog before this Saturday takes me off and running. The storms are taking a brief break before they say the biggest rain storm is yet to come today- with possible thunder. My!
I hope it holds off for the doggie graduation today. I'll take my neighbor Jan with me for her first time, up to the Mission for Canine Companions' graduation of the February's class today. Maybe seeing all the partnerships will change her mind back to wanting to raise a pup with me come April.
It will be great to see so many friends and I love seeing the miracle in progress of these teams heading out into the world; the dogs assisting the new graducates to provide them a more independent life. I'll try to post a few photos here later.

Second Month of 2009 already

A quick test run as I am still learning how this blogging all works. This is my first post since November. Yeeks.

I did a bit of gardening after Kerry's dog walk today and really need to jump in the shower. This is Kerry here.

The clouds are so cool today, blowing across the blue sky quickly almost in anticipation of the coming weather (well weather for those of us in So. Cal).

I'm so bummed as my neighbor called me last night and they have decided to withdraw from co-raising a CCI puppy with me. I'm trying to decide what makes sense for me to do now. They live close by and are so nice so I felt it would have been a great situation. But she told me the timing is just not right for them now after all. I'm crushed.

I have a list of errands to run and want to get them done before the storms coming our way arrive.

More later. If you follow my blog, please let me know if this is working. I hope to post more later about a neat hike I took on Sunday morning before the Superbowl.

Thanks. Bye
