It seemed only a few months ago when this little guy joined our family. He was the 15th (or maybe 16th..you loose track after a dozen or so) Guiding Eyes For The Blind pups that have landed on our doorstep for their puppy boot camp.
Of course in addition to the everyday honing of his socialization skills and the many training sessions which were provided by my wife Pat, a talented and experienced puppy educator, Bailey accompanined us almost everywhere.
He went on our hikes, to our family functions, to our visits to Reny’s and L.L. Bean. He went with us on most of our dining out occasions, finding an appropriate spot curled up under our table.
And of course he went with us on the many boat rides that we made on Penobscot Bay and the various lakes near and not so near our home in Belfast.
It wasn’t long before he made himself at home and became an integral part of our lives. And in short time maturing into a fine and very handsome boy…
And yes..It was very hard to let him go. As it was for the past 14 or 15. Not all of them graduated but that didn’t diminish the joy and love that they added to our lives.
GOOD BOY BAILEY..AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK !!
