|A very sleepy sick puppy at work.|
Yesterday was our annual regional Guide Dog meeting in Denver. It is always a fun event and I love seeing a room full of 30+ puppies all calm and quiet. Amazes me every time. Dilbert after his last eval was placed on food reward protocol for EVERYTHING and got a re-eval at the meeting. He got a "much improved". Yeah!! All my hard work is paying off. Below are some pictures from the meeting.

|3 of the notorious "D" liter. Dilbert, Denmark and Dusky (L to R). |
Denmark was career changed at the meeting for being
excessively attached to his raiser.
|Femi - based on the color of her nose she may carry some chocolate genes.|
|Dilbert gets some loving from John to try and get him to "settle"|
|If an ear rub won't work, try a foot rub.|
|We talked a lot about rewarding puppies for calm behavior. |
This career changed dog has the relaxed thing down!
