Happy to see each other!!

Erin and Rei
* Rei 2nd puppy I raised for the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind*

Rei and Kacie came down to visit with me this weekend, and wow Rei has not changed!
Although its been two years since I've seen her, she did not forget me!!! As soon as I got out of the car, she recognized me, and Kacie said her tail started wagging faster than she'd seen it go!!

Well in harness, she knows what she's supposed to do, and she does it without complaint, take her out of harness, she's the whirlwind Rei that we knew and loved.

All the excitement of the dogs in my house, has really had her wound up, so she's been really keeping thing stirred up this evening.

She still gets in the bath tub for water, she can still catch tossed items in her mouth, she still screams when left on tie-down, though she doesn't pull nearly as hard as I remember....or maybe I'm just used to walking Eden and Ben lol. She still likes to drag around her blanket, and will scarf down her food faster than you can blink.

Compared to Ben, she seems so short and stocky, but its all pure muscle I believe! LOL

Its really surreal to watch her work with Kacie, I'm just like...that's "MY" dog doing that????

Tomorrow, we're going to A******e to visit with my A/C for a little bit. And show Kacie around Rei's hometown!

I just can't believe she's here!!

I just found your blog. I have always admired people who can raise a dog for a year and then hand over the leash. It's such a worthy and selfless endeavor! God bless you and God bless your dogs.
