A few weeks ago (Dec 5-6), I had the opportunity to puppysit Mara. Mara is a female black lab. She is my group leaders' transfer dog. She was really good for us. She has a fun personality! She reminded my family a lot of my dog Graham when he was her age. Anyway, I had her from Saturday to Sunday. Saturday we just hung around at my house and she met my dogs. On Sunday I took her to church. She did really well. Everyone loved her, but my class kept saying that I had a muzzle on her. It was just her Halti! During Young Womens, which is the 3rd hour, she kept sighing. I felt really bad because she would sigh when we were really quiet and when we were listening to a lady talking to us about service and how it has blessed her life. Well, that's how my weekend with Mara went!
I am a college student who is a guide dog puppy raiser for Guide dogs for the Blind. I started raising puppies when I was in Junior High and took a break while in high school, but have decided I want to raise again. I have raised two Guide Dogs. My first dog Breeze is a working guide in Idaho. My second puppy Hazelle was CC'd at 8 months old. She was placed by GDB and is living in California.
