Tux Update: Part 5 Gone to College

Tux Gets Recalled to Headquarters

Tux (405)On July 1, Vicki dropped Tux off at Guide Dogs for the Blind headquarters in San Rafael, California. Tux has officially been recalled to begin his medical evaluation and 8-stage training process to become a guide dog. If all goes well with training, Tux will be paired with his perfect partner!

Saying goodbye is never easy. We are so thankful that Vicki took Tux to visit with staff at City of Reno’s Senior Services one last time. Tux was extremely overjoyed to see some familiar faces from when I worked there last summer.

Cody and I are so grateful that Tux has had Vicki as his second puppy raiser! Thank you Vicki for finishing the job and loving him just as much as we did!
