Pride's litter 1 sml

Hi everybody!  We had a bit of a celebration in our house this month.  June 25th was my first birthday and I’ve grown a lot in my first year!

I came from Susquehanna Service Dogs in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and Dad found a picture of me on their website.  My name was Dexter then and I was still with my Mom,  Boise (from Guiding Eyes for the Blind), and my seven litter mates, Dory, Delilah, Diesel, Duke, Dewey, Dudley, and Diego!  I’m the one on the left with the orange collar.

Now look at me!

I’m not as big as some of the other year-old pups in training but PADS Breeding Program Manager, Jackie, says I’m “fun size” and I like that 🙂
