She did SO much for me and Freya. When my dad could no longer take Freya to school with him everyday and my principal was still being a meanie (only polite word I could think of to describe the way my principal was acting) she took Freya everyday. Without Candie I'm not too sure if I would have been able to finish Freya and then I probably would worry about censoring my words when it comes to my old principal. But it worked out great and I am forever thankful to Candie for all that she has done for me. I'm going to make a point of visiting her while I'm back from school during Christmas break.
I mean look at it! Isn't that just one of the best cakes you've ever seen!? And she did them all herself! Candie's cake has 32 paw prints. I've been waiting over two years for Candie to do another puppy and what does she do? She retires! But still, 32 puppies is quite an achievement.
When it was time to leave, with the rest of my cake in tow, I got pretty sad. I knew that this was the last meeting I would attend for a long time (until December) and that it was the last meeting that Candie would be at. So, I got a picture of me and my two amazing leaders.
For over two years these two ladies have been an amazing support system for me and not only with my puppies, but with my life. I was so sad to leave them both, but I'm going back soon (is 3 months really a long time?) and I'll be glad when I'm back for good (4 years, please I've seen longer). I never thought I would want to go back to my home town because it's so hot and just got boring after a while, but Guide Dogs made me change my mind because they put me in touch with this puppy group.
So, if I haven't said it enough already, I absolutely LOVE my puppy group! I can't wait to be back with them.
