N is for Never Fear, Buster is Here!

Buster and I are home! Once again, I had a fabulous experience at Southeastern Guide Dogs. Buster is a 2 year old, solid black Goldador. His father is a Golden Retriever, and his mother is a black Labrador Retriever. He is 80 pounds and a truly awesome guide dog. Although I feel closest to my trainers (Lynn and Carl), I know it takes a village to raise a guide dog. I am eternally grateful to the staff, volunteers and supporters of SEGDI for Buster. My favorite dreams are those in which I can fly. When I was matched with Buster, it felt like a dream come true. Of all the dogs and all the people and all the wings in the world, Buster arrived with a pair of magical wings that are a perfect fit for us!

Dolly is doing well at Arbor Acres Retirement Community with my mother. I am eternally grateful to my mother as well for providing such a wonderful home for Dolly. Now I hear Christmas is just 12 days from today so I'm off to load my sleigh...
