New puppy on the way!

I got the call yesterday from Suzzane, the Puppy Coordinator for the North Central Region for Canine Companions for Independence.

For those of you who are familiar with
Canine Companions for Independence, Puppyraising program you understand the feeling that comes with given the opportunity to raise another puppy.

My family is going to raise Rowan, born May 21, 2009.

To learn more about Rowan from the view of the
Breeder/Caretaker you can visit her Blog.

What I can tell you so far about Rowan - is he is a golden/lab cross and he will be ready to pick up from CCI on June 17th!

It is difficult to describe how excited we are to raise a puppy, only to return it to CCI when all the hard work is done. but it is. Only other puppyraisers can understand and still not be able to put it into words why we do it.



  1. Hey, this is Madison! Another NCR puppy raiser! Nice blog, I look forward to reading more as Rowen comes home!

  2. Hi this is Barbara. Who would have thought that two CCI puppyraisers would have Owensboro connections? My hubsand is from Owensboro and we are there frequently (we live in Atlanta now).
