Happy Would-Be 7th Birthday...

To Yarmouth, the first dog I raised for Guiding Eyes for the Blind in 2004. Unfortunately, Yarmouth had several medical problems that required him to retire early from being a guide dog. Because I was in school, I was unable to adopt him or provide him the extensive care he needed, so he was adopted by a nurse in Virgina. They cared for him for 6 months before his ailments got the better of him, and he peacefully was put to sleep earlier this year. Yarmouth taught me so much...I owe it to him for getting me so involved in dog training :). Thanks, Buddy. You are greatly missed <3.
