McLean Puppy Chronicles: What happens when you do the unthinkable and open yourself up to raise a puppy to give away to someone else: You create joy and freedom for a visually impaired person. We're puppy raisers for Southeastern Guide Dogs. Read about our journey.
We are so proud of Dewey. He is a calm and very sweet boy and we are so proud of him. Here are the comments from the trainer:
COMMENTS: Dewey continues to do well in training! We are going to lots of different venues and he is generally a very mature and well behaved gentleman. He still needs some additional support from his handler, especially in more challenging work environments. He has a great settle and it's clear that you put a lot of time and love into teaching him to be such a nice boy.
Now, you might wonder what a nice settle is. We are pretty sure that is Dewey being lazy and plopping into a down stay after about 30 seconds of standing up. So, yes, we will take credit for that. Dewey was a lot like Bob, another puppy we puppy sat years ago. When I tried to introduce Bob to people, if I talked for more than 15 seconds, Bob would fall into a deep trance and lay on the floor. We called Bob: surfer dude. Nothing bothered him.
Now, Dewey is super chill as well. He also likes to lay down and nap. We always said he is the perfect dog for someone with an office job because all he wants to do is lay under the desk and sleep. In meetings he just curls up by your feet and sleeps.
We love you Dewey. Stay strong. Work on those challenging work environments. You can do it. You were a champ at school. You've got this! Go Dewey!
