OK - I have gone and done it! I have applied to become a guide dog puppy walker. The assessor is coming on May 12th to see if we are suitable. Then, if all is well, the puppy will arrive in July. Tatze will be 15 months old. My friend has been bringing up a guide dog puppy since September and I have spent a lot of time with them and thought long and hard about it, asking many people many questions. I enjoyed Tatze's puppyhood so much I just wanted to do it again and again!! She is very good with other dogs and pups so I hope she'll be a great help in bringing the puppy up. Exciting times!
