Here's my latest article for Michaela's newspaper. I just brought my cousins over to meet Madision and they fell in love with her, too!! She is so amazing! It is going to be so fun to get to know her and watch her grow. She has the sweetest personality. I just LOVE puppies, don't you?

My friends, Ronnie and Michael belong to a charity called Seeing Eye Dogs of America where they part train Labradors and other dog breeds to become seeing eye dogs! They teach them to sit, stay, come, heel and a few other commands that the dogs will need to know to become registered seeing eye dogs. The dogs they are currently training are named Karson and Jupiter. Karson is a chocolate brown and Jupiter is yellow/tan. When I went to their house, the dogs started to bark and when I went in they started to lick me. Once they went to Long Beach Aquarium for part of their training. When they got there, they saw the sea lions and the dogs and sea lions went nose to nose through the glass. Then when they went to the top where the sea lions were doing a show, the sea lions started to bark at the dogs and would not do anything but bark! It was too funny!
They have rencently gotten a new puppy for training. Her name is Madison. She is so cute! She is so playful and funny. When they first get a puppy for training, they are seven to eight weeks old and when they send them back for the last bit of training they are fifteen to seventeen months.
