On Friday Feb 4, 2011, with much excitement, we traveled to the city of White Water where the Guide Dogs of the Desert is located to pick up our puppy. All we knew was that his name was Jake and he was a male Chocolate Lab. Our training appointment was scheduled for 2pm. We arrived early of course because my mom hates being late. We walked into a room and WOW, there were 6 Chocolate Labs and a 1 German Shepherd split into 2 pens. I wonder which one is mine. We were told which one was Jake and it was LOVE at first lick.
Jake's first night at home was exhausting. I forgot how many times a night a puppy needs to get up and go pee.
