Phase 8

Breeze is in phase 8 as of Thursday August 18, 2011 around 3:00 PM (when I got the phase report info) on the Oregon campus.
 As of Thursday August 18, 2011 at around 11:00 PM Breeze is graduating on August 27, 2011. My family was on vacation when we got the phase report and the call telling us she was in class so my group leader had to email us the information of what happened.
    Breeze has been paired with someone who was originally with another dog but that dog didn't work out so the blind partner was paired with Breeze instead as a last minute placement. We knew that Breeze would be easy to pair and so we knew that when she reached phase 8 we would get a call soon after but we didn't know it was going to be the same day.
I was glad when I got the email saying that Breeze was going to graduate on the 27th because I had conflicts for every other graduation after that up until the last week of October (which we knew she was not going to wait that long to be paired.)
I am excited to go and meet her partner and figure out where she will be working. Right now my family is trying to figure out the best way to get out there since graduation is the Saturday after my school starts.
 More info to come later when I find out more.

Breeze around 11 weeks old with her cute messy face.

Breeze about a week before she went to formal training.

  1. Congratulations on Breeze's placement!! That's so exciting, enjoy the graduation, I had so much meeting Mindy's new family when she graduated :)

  2. Our pretty girl is going to graduate! Go, Breeze! And I'm sure her new family will love her as much as we do. She's such an awesome dog.

  3. You did it, Katherine! Puppy #1 a graduate! That's so exciting! Cograts! And enjoy meeting Breeze's partner!!!
