Bad News

Dear Diary,

Now dat I'm a whole 11 months old, mom keeps saying stuffs like "IFT" and "puppies" and "dissapointments" and all sorts of other stuff dat I normally understand but not like how she is saying them.

Like da other day, she was talking to our neighbor about getting another puppy!? I don't even know what she meant by that cause I mean HELLO I"M Sitting right here!
Then she said that she didn't know when I was leaving for IFT but it would probably be in a couple of months.

So any ways i had ta get on the Doogle network (google for hadn't heered about that?!)

And then I gots a lot of junk like Career centesr an annual meetings stuff, so I had to have mom help me. I did not even like what I found on there!! 

So apparently dis I.F.T. stands for : In Formal Training. And what dat means is dat I have ta go back to the school place that I came from ( a loooooooong time ago). And then I have to stay in a kennel place and have lots of doggie friends to play wit and then I gots to do like I do wit mom and go into stores and stuff butt this time i has to wear a harness thingy cause that means I'm trainin to be a guide dog.

I gotsta say that it does sound like a little bit of fun, cept for the leavin mom part, but if I stays wit her I won't get to have a joby thingy and if I don't stay with her then I gots to go away all by myself to a bunch of peoples I don't even know.


I thinks I'm going to sleep on dis.

Pompei, if you do go, my bet is that eventually you'll meet somebody who will love you a whole lot for the job you're doing for them! It's definitely a lot of work ahead, and a very tough choice for you! I wish you the best of luck with whatever you decide!

Oh Pompei... you are gonna start a new phase in your life. I KNOW it will be very interesting and that you will LOVE it.
Congratulations... you are growing up.

Oh, Pompei...It sounds like you need to have a heart to heart with mom.

I admire her so much for training you and looking ahead to to next pup she can train. Saying good-bye to you must be so hard for her.

Don't worry about it too much and enjoy your next couple months

Oh I think you will have a great time at school. Even though I didn't learn a lot, I still had a good time when I got to go :)

I can't imagine what this must be like, even knowing it was going to happen doesn't seem like it would be any easier. Good luck to you and Pompei.
