Let the Adventure Begin

Today, I begin my training at the Oregon campus of Guide Dogs for the Blind. So far, I’ve met my fellow classmates, had orientation, a facility tour, eaten 2 yummy meals, and received my supplies for the dog I will receive tomorrow. This is a two week training program, and then I will return to Utah with my guide.

It’s interesting that I feel very at peace here- like it’s where I should be right now. I’ve been very nervous about this direction change in my life- mostly just because it’s change and unknown. But, being here, I’m getting a little excited. It poured rain today, and I am not looking forward to training on the rainy streets of Portland, but here goes the adventure! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s announcement of my new furry friend.

I was hoping you would be posting about your new adventure. I am so excited for you and am so happy you feel it's the right place for you, my friend! Enjoy every moment. Can't wait to see you both when you get home. P.S. good news from the doc today.

How wonderful! I randomly stumbled on your blog today, and wanted to wish you good luck. I have raised a few puppies for GDB.

Frissy, so very excited to hear of your new adventure. Hope it all goes well. I'm sure that it will. Who has the poop scoop?

By the way that wasn't Sierra, it was your big bro.
