Ray In The Spray

A calm start to a late afternoon picnic boat ride to Fort Point State Park turned a bit choppy on our return to Belfast. 

Raymond, who was comfortably lounging up front on his boat bed, was the recipient of some bow spray as we rounded the tip of Sears Island. Not appreciative of this treatment he was forced to endure, he started to pathetically stare through the windshield, envying the relative protection that it was providing us. 

...Some days it hard to be you Ray...

But soon we were out of the rough stuff and enjoying the rest of our homeward leg back to the boat launch.
...Life is good, eh Ray?

Congrats To Our Boy Zed

Congratulations to our boy Zeddy. 

He passed his IFT (In For Training) exam with flying colors. In fact we have been told through a highly placed source that he is a rock star at Guiding Eyes For The Blind.

Zed following his commands..
A very nice down..
Intense concentration..
A well deserved rest..

So now he is in the formal training program to become a Guide Dog but there is a long way to go for him. Many things can still happen to derail his career. He could get released for stress, or something physical or, as the pressure mounts on him as his training intensifies, he may just say no to it all.
But for now he’s on course and making us very proud parents..
Good Boy Zeddy!
