So earlier I log onto blogger and see this great thing on Ro's blog, I had received a Thanksgiving award! So what happens is, once you have been given an award, you're supposed to give the award to 5 other people who you think deserve it. Ok, here are my 5 choices.

1. Would have to be Darrell because without him I would have never even known about guide dogs and puppy raising lol. For those of you who don't know Darrell is my boyfriend, he is blind and due to all of our research and efforts to get Egypt, his guide dog, we decided to do the puppy raising program here in Texas.

2. I want to give an award to Alphini's Puppy Raiser, Beth, who is also Dakota's Puppy Raiser, however Dakota has just recently graduated to becoming a Diabetes dog so Alfie is her new puppy. Beth raises for Guide Dogs of Texas, which is the same organization I am trying to raise for. Beth is very kind and has been very encouraging since we met.

3. I want to give and award to Cabana's Puppy Raiser, hers was one of the first blogs I started reading and she has always given really good advice. So thanks Mimi!

4. I want to give an award to Megan, Fuller and Paris' raiser, again, hers is another blog I have read since I started all of this and her stories have always been encouraging and entertaining to me. Thanks Megan

5. Is going to have to be Ro of course. I don't know if thats even fair because she gave one to me but I want to give one back. Ro has got to be one of the nicest people I have ever 'met'. She is on the path to getting a guide dog and tells stories about her progress with that, she also tells stories about her life and how she came to be where she is now. Ro, you are one of the most interesting people I know and I can't wait to see your story unfold.

So now, if you were mentioned here what you are supposed to do is take the picture and give an award to 5 other people. Ro, obviously you are excluded from this but for all you others, have fun!

Crazy thing happened today....

So today while Darrell and I were on our way back to the car Egypt did a crazy thing... She found the car! Now something you have to understand is Egypt hasn't been trained to find the car, we tried like once but never did again. Usually when we go to the car I just click the remote to open up the back so Darrell can hear where it opens and finds it that way. Well today I took a little too long to find the keys and didn't have time to push the button and guess what she did - she turned and went straight for the car! I know it doesn't sound like that much but it was really cool. Well thats about it, I just wanted to share because it was exciting! 

This is a picture of Egypt standing by the door of the Jeep.. This is the side door but because of all the fur and how hard it is to get out of the cloth on the seats we decided she gets to ride in the back.. Its actually better for her back there because its flat and she can't fall off the seat accidentally lol. Yes that has happened.

Movie Night

Ok since its been about forever since I have posted something I decided I could post up some videos Darrell and I made. We just got a little video camera, well I gave it to Darrell for his birthday so we decided to make some movies to show how Egypt works and stuff.. Most of it is just me talking and following Darrell around like a creepy little stalker but here you go anyways. Enjoy!

This first video is supposed to be Darrell finding and going down a stair case at school. Well I started rolling a little too soon so there is just a bunch of me rambling and at the end chaos ensues due to my phone so sorry for the boring awkward clip.

Here is the link to the 1st video on youtube >

By the way the reason we were joking about Darrell tumbling down the stairs is because at some point while he was walking down the steps he gave me the thumbs up. Well the camera doesn't zoom out that much so it missed it and when I asked him to do it again he was right at a break point or little landing and if he hadn't put his hand down when he did he probably would have tumbled all the way down due to lack of finding the next railing lol. Sorry about the abrupt stop also.. the phone call was actually from GDTX telling me my second hosting session had been canceled.. just like the first one lol. Maybe they just don't want me cooking for their clients. No haha I'm cooking tomorrow for a new client so wish me luck! Taco's tomorrow.

This next video is of us trying to find our parking spot and how Egypt knows where to go across the street.

Here is the link for the second video on youtube >

The reason for my little mean "fine" at the end is simply because Darrell messed up my video lol. In his defense he told me he thought I was done recording so he wanted to heel Egypt to the car and hold onto me because we were all the way down at the end of the line and it was kind of hot that day. So yup, here you go, some videos of us. If you have any special requests of stuff you want to see or things you want me to take pictures of let me know and I will do my best. Its going to be a pretty boring month so give me some stuff to do.

No news yet on the puppy raising frontier but hopefully I can squeeze some information out of Michelle (the puppy lady) when I see her tomorrow.
