I have been awaiting the day I got to post this ever since I dropped Butler off at CCI to continue his training. It has been a long wait with three and a half years spent at Bethel College puppy-less, but I am happy to announce that my days without a CCI puppy are coming to an end. Yes, you heard me right. Madison Warren....I mean Dodge, will be getting a new CCI puppy when one becomes available. This time around I am thrilled because my wonderful husband (weird to say) will be doing it with me. We are both thrilled by the prospects of having a puppy around with the hopes that we will provide independence to a disabled individual. I wake up every morning now hoping it will be the day when I get an email with a puppy name, breed, gender, anything really. I am practicing patience though. Through my time of practicing patience I have been puppy proofing our apartment, hanging up a hook for puppy leash, a cape, and a gentle leader, and figuring out the best location for a toy box. I'm not sure I can wait much longer! Patience Madison, patience.
