Puppy dog eyes
Saturday, February 13 2010, after 2 years with CCI, 9 months in Advanced Training, 2 weeks of Team Training, Andros II will be graduating.
When you stand in the kennels and are handed that small, wiggly puppy you dream big! You imagine them in that blue cape, standing alongside their partner, ready to take on the world. Sometimes that dream doesn't come true.....but....sometimes it does!
I worked hard with my little charge. We stood side by side for over a year. I taught him some, he taught me most though. I loved that little dog, but when I put him in the kennels at CCI, I knew he'd make it. He had proved himself time and time again.
Saturday Andros will be graduating as a Service dog for Canine Companions for Independence. He will be proudly dressed in blue and gold. Ready to provide independence for his partner, and accept her for exactly who she is. They can take on the world....together, I always knew he could!!
