Hearing & Service Dogs of MN Graduation

Chase & Izzy

3 of our puppies graduated for Hearing & Service Dogs of MN yesterday! Brinks & Viggo are both service dogs and Izzy is a Hearing Dog. They are all from our Sydne's 1st litter, as is Vern, who graduated this spring and is an Autism Assist Dog. We are so proud!
These pictures are from backstage, before the actual ceremony. We had about an hour to spend with the dogs. We had Izzy until she was about 9 months old- she was Chase's dog. She definitely remembered us, but didn't have as big of a reaction to seeing us again as we thought she might. She's still a petite little girl, but so well behaved! And cute! It was fun seeing her next to her brothers, who we haven't seen since they were 8 weeks old. Viggo is tall and lean and looks very athletic, while everything about Brinks is just big! We saw a little bit of Sydne in all of them and they even have some of her little behaviors!
It is so amazing to see the dogs with their clients and hear about what a difference they make in their lives. It makes all the hard work that goes into raising the puppies worthwhile! We are honored that we can part of the process!
Congratulations to everyone who graduated yesterday! We wish you the best!
