Puppy Sitting a Guide Dog

So this past weekend we had our first experience with a guide dog puppy. We puppy sat for a beautiful black lab girl named Marlowe! She is just over a year old and is such a good girl.

Griffin and Lady eventually decided she was not going to eat them and began to like her. Lady did not appreciate and sudden moves by Marlowe but she made great improvements as the weekend went by. Lady has fear issues. Griffin, being the smallest of the three, decided he was the "top dog" and would steal Marlowe's toys right from under her.

We wanted to get all we could out of this experience so we took Marlowe on a few outings!

We went to our Aunt's Dry Cleaner's and she did great. Then we decided to go to the pita pit for lunch. Marlowe just layed on the floor. She was perfect. Then we went to the movies. We saw How to Train your Dragon, it was such a cute show! Marlowe again just layed on the floor by our feet. She did not even steel popcorn from the floor! Sunday we took her to church. We only went to sacrament because Michelle had no voice and did not feel amazing. We got there super early (30min) we were begged to join the choir but luckily Michelle had no voice so we had a very obvious excuse. I wonder if it will work next time.... Anyway we got there early and marlowe layed on the floor once again. We even had someone sit next to us in our pew and she did not notice Marlowe until the meeting was over and we got up to leave! We had a great time with her. We cant wait to get our own little guide puppy in may!
