Are we really going to do this?

We are getting a puppy – but s/he is not going to be our puppy. While I agree the effort of blending a new family of six kids (some typically developing and some not so typically developing) may, at times, be hard work enough for any person to handle much less with a puppy in tow, we hope our efforts with this puppy will be rewarded beyond measure. You see, we are going to be ‘Puppy Raisers’ for Southeastern Guide Dogs, Inc. (, a non-profit organization whose mission is to ‘create and nurture a partnership between a visually impaired individual and a guide dog, facilitating life’s journey with mobility, independence and dignity’.

The SEGD website states ‘It takes a village to raise a puppy, especially if that puppy serves proudly as a Southeastern Guide Dog’. It is our hope that our FF village and surrounding community will help us as we train and socialize the puppy.

Please check back often as we will post updates on our experiences and our progress with puppy often.
