The Interview Went Well!

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.

    That’s awesome! πŸ™‚ My friend has been a guide dog puppy raiser and she loves it. I would love to do something like that but I can’t even have a dog right now. Damn, little complex. That said, I do love my cat to pieces. Anyway, good luck with it all. Sure you’ll be a puppy raiser soon! πŸ™‚
