Sad News


Jordan is a puppy I've watched several times for puppy raiser, who volunteer with the Guide Dog Foundation. I don't know if I mentioned how she'd had a bad limp, because she'd fallen from her raisers deck.

Although she'd been checked twice, the vets proclaimed nothing wrong with her until now. Apparently one of the bones in her leg is healing wrong, thus causing the limp. She's in surgery now, and will be in a brace for 10-weeks.

I told her family, I don't know how they will be able to do that!! But she is being released from the guide dog program because of it. She won't ever be able to handle the rigors of guide work.In someways medical CC's are hard because its not like the dog got to make the decision that guide work wasn't the right path for them. Oh well.
She's going to make someone an awesome pet.

...If you can't tell I really get attached to these dogs!

aw, speedy recovery Jordan!!!

I always thought a medical issue would be better because it meant I didn't do something to screw up the dogs training, but never thought about it not making the dog be able to make a choice to work or not. Man, now that does make it harder.

Yeah, it sure is hard when that happens. I've seen a few go through and had to be released because of health reasons. You do get very attached! Its hard not to. I hope she heals quickly, that's got to be painful :(
