Update from Franco to mom

Remember our 'F' litter pups? Here's an update from one of them, Franco, to his mom, now-retired breeder Christine.

Hello Mama,

What a month! I've been very busy traveling and meeting people. I have been a handsome ambassador for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

I have been traveling almost all month. I have only been home at my puppy raiser family's house for five whole days this month. The first part of November I flew to southern California and was totally pampered. The last part of November I drove to Montana and went hiking along the Continental Divide. I've seen the Pacific Ocean and the headwaters of Missouri River which flows into the Gulf of Mexico. I met a young infant and visited a spry 101-year-old man. America is a beautiful country even when it snows on you. It doesn't matter whether you are driving or flying, America is a big diverse and beautiful country.

You asked me how my training was going. I have almost all 12 of my commands down pat. I can go from a down to a sit and I am also working on a stand from a sit. Those are tricky, but I am sure that I am going to get them soon. My stay is not that solid yet but you wait and I will get that too. While I was in California we weren't able to make it back to the house we were staying at because of the fires there so I slept on my tie down. It was the first time that I slept all night out of my crate. I did really well.

With love and licks,


  1. This is by far the most adorable blog I've ever read and the sweetest puppies I've ever seen.

  2. Amy -- Did anyone ever tell you that you have good taste? Thanks for your comments!
