New puppy

On November 17th, 2007, Tom and I got our first Guide Dogs for the Blind puppy. His name is Sterling, and he is a male black lab. He was born on September 10, 2007 to Denzel and Parkay. He has a brother, Shaw, in our club, Summit Guide Dogs. Another sibling is his brother Sparky who is being raised in the Utah County club.

I should have worn a white shirt! All of our club members who got black pups were wearing dark shirts! Sterling was 13.5 lbs when we got him.

Getting Sterling from the puppy truck.

We are slowly working towards housetraining. Sterling seems to have a very small margin for controling his bladder, when he has to go, he has to go right then! This has meant a couple accidents where he has pee'ed on people, myself and Tom included. However, he is very smart, and has learned kennel, come, sit, wait (to a small degree), and no! We are well on our way to a good 'Do your buisness' response as well!

Thats all for now. More stories to come about Sterling and my other amazing dogs; Dante, Marley and Hugo.
