ME: Hi Becky! Have you heard anything about Honey and Moose yet?
BECKY: I did but I am in shock and until this moment have been unable to speak.
ME: What? Is Honey ok?
BECKY: I just got her first report and she passed all her medical exams. As a matter of fact, she is doing so well she has been fast tracked and has already been matched with her future partner! They will graduate next month.
BECKY: Yes, Honey has done so well that she set a Southeastern Guide Dogs record for the earliest placed, quickest trained and best behaved dog ever!
ME: No wonder you are in shock, but I am not surprised. Honey is one smart girl!
Instead, I got the 'no news is good news' report. Although I know Honey will not be the earliest placed, the best behaved or the quickest trained dog at Southeastern, she is still on track to be a future guide dog. And I am ok with that.
