Wordless Wednesday: P.R.O.U.D. Puppies

22 Jun

ww 6.22.16

Peanut walked in her commencement last month. Did I tell you that the university had a puppy raising program? Puppy Raisers of the University of Delaware (PROUD) is a registered student organization that raises puppies for ‘The Seeing Eye.’ The Seeing Eye is a guide dog school that breeds and trains Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Lab-Golden crosses to become guide dogs for the visually impaired. PROUD consists of both puppy raisers and puppy sitters whose job is to expose the young dogs to as many situations as possible to prepare them for their future job as a guide dog. To help with this, the puppies come with students to many of the places they go including class, club meetings and events. The club has special approved housing areas where the puppies live with the student. It is a very time-consuming commitment, as the raisers are responsible for the puppy’s complete care, as well as, basic obedience and manners. How rewarding.

Peanut walked with her friend and the puppy her friend raised.  PROUD, fur sure.

    I’m amazed Peanut didn’t raise a puppy. Such a great idea!
