On Friday we picked up our new 8 week old "Dog With Wings" puppy. He reminds me of a baby hippo! Don't get me wrong, I think baby hippos are cute as heck, and so is this pup.
Right now he is in my arms because he had a rough day. He had a long 45 minute ride to school, and he howled for 40 minutes of it, and another 40 minutes back home. He got beaten up by his smaller brothers and sisters, and as a consequence, forgot everything we had taught him over the weekend.
Luckily, we fed him supper and all was forgotten. He was then able to help us with our Halloween decorations,
and sweeping up the leaves.
I am sleep deprived right now because it seems that I am the only one in the house that hears him whining at 2:00, 4:00, 5:30 and 7:30 in the morning.
We are going to try our hardest to help him win his wings and become the best guide dog he can be.
(Unpaid Advertisement) Dogs With Wings is a non-profit charitable organization, they do not suck off the government teat like other organizations. They only charge $1 to the families that get the dogs, and rely heavily on volunteers, like my family. If you can possibly volunteer to foster one of these dogs, you will be rewarded a thousand times over by the love they give you, and watching them with their handicapped people.
