So, Spanky had his evaluation with my CFR yesterday. He did really well during the eval, we had all our club pups their plus a few others from different clubs (including Bracken who is Burgess' brother he is really cute and minded really well) We started with going around and introducing us and our dogs and their ages and then we took a walk down State Street (busy street) so she could see how all the dogs reacted to traffic because there was one puppy in particular who had trouble with traffic noises. After that we went back and told the best thing our pups did and the worst thing. Spankys best thing is that he is great out in public and knows exactly what I expect of him and his worst thing is that he is not the brightest crayon in the box. He is kind of thick and it takes him a while to "get it" it can be frustrating at times! Anywho, then we went out to the parking lot and my CFR and leader turned on their cars and we had the dogs walk around them and then get in and out of the car. Spanky had no problem, he didn't even notice the car turn on and he loves to jump so he loved jumping in and out of the car. After that we worked on recalls. And then we were free to go. Except, I knew that my CFR wanted to talk to me about Spanky after the meeting so I hung back to talk to her. We discussed some of Spankys issues and she thinks that a career change is in his future. She has to talk to Pat at Guide Dogs and see if they should bring him into training or if they should just cc him. My CFR said that it would most likely be a cc. Especially because the string of dogs going the end of October is going to be in the new accelerated learning pilot program and she thinks that Spanky would crush under the pressure of that. So, I don't know when I will know for sure because I know she is here for a few more days placing the high school program dogs so probably not until the end of next week. I am sad though. If he does end up being cc'd then that will be four in a row. . . Can one of my dogs PLEASE graduate!!?!?!? My CFR was also telling me that she thinks his first raiser would take him back so if that happens I will still keep him until the end of October and then put him on the puppy truck to be delivered to Colorado, so that would be nice for him not having to go to Oregon and then back. That's about it from here. Sorry nothing more upbeat. . .
