Vigo is off to "Guide Dog College"

So I have to be honest...  for some reason I have bonded with vigo more than I have with puppies in the past.  Maybe it is his laid back personality or maybe it is all that we've been through in the past year.  All I know is that I am really going to miss the lazy silly boy!  Here are some pictures from the puppy truck on Friday.

"Mr. Dog Distracted" wouldn't look at the camera.  

My beautiful big boy and I in front of the puppy truck. 

Vigo wouldn't get in the kennel.  Even with a treat!  I had to pick him up and force him in... it broke my heart!  This pictures is a bit blurry because his sad look was making me start to cry.  I know he will have a great time but it still is hard!

Maddie, one of our clubs other raisers, let me love on her new puppy petunia so that I wouldn't feel so sad.   

We didn't get a new puppy on this truck.  It was really hard to give up a dog and not have a new puppy in my arms.  But with Matthew now crawling and soon to be walking.... a new puppy would be a bit much right now.  We are going to wait and see what happens with vigo and if he graduates then we will get another puppy in the fall.  In the mean time we are rapidly filling up our days with lots of puppy sitting.

Vigo is doing great! I help walk dogs while the dogs are here in Utah for the afternoon, evening and tomorrow morning I will go help again. I got to walk Vigo 2 times today (they got 3 walks today). He is such a nice boy and has a great face! He still doesn't want to get in the kennel on the puppy truck... But he is adjusting well, and seems happy!

Good Luck Vigo! :) I know he will do awesome. My husband and I love puppy-sitting (in fact we have never raised full time because we are too busy). I do agree that there are some dogs you just bond with a little more than others. Can't wait to see Vigo progress through the phases and graduate! :)
