Our first Halloween..


For our first Halloween together, we went to a Lone Star Guide Dog Raisers Halloween party. It was a ton of fun. It was potluck so we all brought a few items. After dinner, we had the normal puppy raising meeting. We didn’t do a lot of the drills this time though. I met our Community Field Representative, Sandi. Basically, whereas guide dog handlers have Field Representatives to help us with issues, they have a Community FIeld Representative which tracks each puppies progress, does routine evaluations, etc. She explained a few things that were going on, shifts in how they are training the dogs, etc. Then, we dressed all of our dogs up. That was a ton of fun and there were some really really cute costumes. Of course, Makiko doesn’t absolutely love being dressed up but she tolerates it. Good girl.. There were two black labradors there and what do you know.. they were the two devils. Haha. After that, we played Bunco. It was our first time and there were several dogs in close proximity to each other while we played so it was good practice. It was my first time really dressing her up. 🙂

Happy belated Halloween!
