Today the representative of the South African Guide-dog Association came to see me in connection with my application to be a guide-dog puppy raiser!
Raising guide-dog puppies is something I have wanted to do for many years. My situation was never ideal though- working full day, living in a flat, raising the knucklehead, etcetera- and now that I work from home and my knucklehead is a grown up its something I can do!
Its quite a process to become a puppy raiser, and I sent my application in a few months ago and today their rep, Monica, could finally come and see me and check out the house.
I think the interview went very well, and within a few weeks we’ll know for sure whether we will be receiving a puppy or not.
I will be blogging about the whole adventure on my Angel’s Cats blog if you want to read more about it, and I intend to make full use of social media to create awareness of the Guide-Dog Association’s cause as well.
