Coach Goes Away to Puppy Camp!

Coach went to puppy camp today.  What is puppy camp, you ask?  Well, puppy camp is when we take our Southeastern Guide Dog puppy and we give him to another Southeastern Guide Dog puppy raiser family to raise for two weeks.

Why, you ask? There is a method to the madness.  If it is only one week, then the puppy is still on its good behavior and any bad behaviors we might want them to be on the look out for (say trash picking or side table surfing) might not come out.  But by week two, they unbutton their pants, so to speak.  They settle in and get comfortable.  They might take your hair scrunchie off the coffee table and try to eat it (are you listening Jordan? 8-)

So, I drove Coach down to the Kriseman's house for his puppy camp.  Not only are they experienced puppy raisers (Eckerd, who went in with Jam has already been matched and just graduated with her person last week), but they are experienced puppy campers.  Unfortunately, they don't currently have a puppy.  That means we are without a puppy to bring to school for two weeks since the deal with Ava fell through (Coach being intact and all, see previous post on humping).

Coach staring at me with a solemn expression in the car on the way to camp.

I did take two photos of Coach with Kerry and Jordan.  One had Coach as a blur and everyone else was a bit blurry as well.  The other one wasn't blurry, but we had to take it so quick that not everyone had on their pretty face.  So, I'll just leave you with Coach's serious face photo on his way to puppy camp.

I have a good night photo that I just received in a text from Kerry (woot!!).

Coach, very tired after playing all night with Peppermint!
Evidently he has played with every toy in the house and Peppermint is guarding his big container of food.  Just in case anyone is thinking of stealing it!  Good Peppermint!

I know he will have a lot of fun at camp.  I can't wait to see photos and hear about his adventures.  I'll keep you all posted.
