Lennox is One Year Old!
We finally got back to the vet for a weigh-in! He weighs 28,3kg and he’s just over 57cm tall.
This was our last weekly weigh-in at the vet… Last Friday I got the email all puppy walkers dread – Lennox’s intake date.
The “intake date” is the date that your puppy needs to be back at the training centre to start their advanced training, and next Monday April 14th is the date.
We have less than a week left with our sweet boy. Lennox, Legend and Lenny have the same intake date and they have been allocated to Guide Dog Mobility Instructor Joel. We will get a monthly email from our puppy’s trainer to let us know how he’s doing, and then we’ll see him again when he’s ready to qualify with his new owner.
And today the 2013 “L” litter puppies – Lennox, Legend, Lenny, Lotus, Libby, London, Lola and Lucy – are a whole one year old!
Apart from a few school visits (Reddam House & Crossroads) and the SAGA Fun Festival, Lennox and I have made our usual shopping trips and car rides.
He also had a bad bout of kennel cough which he has thankfully gotten over, and he spent a week in SAGA’s kennels to ensure that the routine and people are not completely new to him when he starts his training – reducing any stress he may experience.
His training continues to go well, and apart from distraction issues with children and dogs (not aggression) we think he’s ready for his training.
We are going to miss him something fierce…
Stay tuned for regular updates!
