Guide Dog Updates

Bingham is a BREEDER!!!  Yay!  He is going to have a "date" in the coming weeks.  Bernstein and Duncan are in phase 9 at the Boring campus.  Our club is welcoming a new puppy on April 11th!  It is a "F" MYL.  

Sterling is back with me, and is having some weird behavior problems since I went on vacation.  He is back to not walking on a leash, and really trying to rub his face on my legs when we walk, gentle leader or not!  He even ran into the back of Tom's legs today when we were walking to the movie theater. He has even chewed up some stuff, and had an accident!  Ekk!  I think he is really confused from being away from me, so that means he needs to be traded more I think.

Or it could be hormones, his snip-snip is in 3 weeks.  We will keep working on it.  

He did go to work with Tom yesterday, and no one even knew he was there!  He just slept in the back the whole time!  Tom is stuck at the base patrol for the rest of the ski season because of his knee.  He wants to take him tomorrow, but does not feel like he should because the avalanche dog that is at base this week is dog aggressive!!!  

Now this base patrol building also houses a public University health clinic.  The avalanche dogs are just allowed to be loose in this building, and anyone going in would have to go by the avy dog.  If someone with a service dog were to go in there, their dog could be attacked.  This dog has already attacked a dog while it was working!!!  I really want to say something, because it just doesn't seem right to have an aggressive working dog, but I don't want to use GDB, since we do not fight for access.  Maybe the resort needs a reminder about liability....

Anyways, the meeting is at the library tomorrow, and I have a potential new member going with me!  The only problem would be that she lives half the year in Utah, the other half in CA.  I don't know how GDB would work with that...

Thats all I have for now.

That's weird about Sterling. Maybe he will get better after being with you for a few days. Have fun at the meeting!

Hopefully Sterling gets back in the swing of things soon. My dogs have all been a bit nuts after I get back from a trip. :) And good luck with his snip-snip.

Bingham is a half brother to Hobbs! Bummer that Sterling came home with issues. Hopefully he gets over them quickly. First time I had Hobbs puppysat he came home obssessed with eating his poop.

I definatly thing you should at least mention something to someone about the agressive dog.
