Meet Chance

This is Chance, a yellow lab pup that my sister in Ontario is 'puppy walking'.  Chance will be living with my sister and her family for 12-18 months, before he goes on for more advanced guide dog training.  It is her job to teach Chance the basics and to expose him to as many people, places and experiences as she can.

I tried to convince her to start a blog to chart Chance's training, but I'm afraid that fell on deaf ears:(
