Bella and the vet

Bella had to go to the vet on Wednesday for her 16 weeks shots, 3 in fact!!! She did pretty good. She weights 21 lbs!
Doc said she is very healthy.

Bella's progress

Well, she has done so much since I got Bella 2 weeks and 2 days ago.

She is about house trained...not yet to be free in the house due to her chewing on everything in sight.

She has been to several restaurants, and her first intersection in the city. She did great, because the other dogs were around in our puppy raising group.

She is a hit everywhere she goes, children to the elderly just are drawn to her. It is quite fun I must admit being able to take her to some places I go at this time.

We are always in training mode outside of the house. Commands like down stay, stairs up...etc. It is Very Different from raising a pet.

Enjoy the new pics!

Target visit

Bella and family went to Target on Wednesday. She was a big hit...we were able to speak of SEGD and the sponsors part as well as her program while with her puppy raisers.

It was a great exposure. We stayed up front while my hubby shopped for me.

Everyone was very impressed with her poise.

Bath time

Bella got her first bath with me today. She was very still, I bathed her and cleaned her ears. She did not whimper once!
1st public appearance

Today a few of us went to a Church summer camp of many children. They were very attentive to the speaker and had great questions. We got lost of course, and Bella being in the car for over an hour, after lunch and nap was raring to go! She was quiet but very wiggly.

It was great bringing awareness to young folks!
Bella's milestone today!!!!
She hopped in the car today, after I said, "car in". I was so proud of her...only a few days ago was her first car ride with me!

How you can help !

If anyone is so moved that they would like to help out SEGD in their endeavor of basically setting people free in having a Guide Dog, you may do so by going to a safe site for charitable donations, that SEGD trusts.

People like me who are raising funds for SEGD's annual Walk-a-thon are suggested to use for donations. The donations go directly to SEGD. My site is

Please consider, any amount is so appreciated!

Thank you!!!
