Happy 9th Birthday Rogue

Today is a special labrador’s birthday. Its Rogue’s 9th birthday!!!

Its hard to believe my little red girl is already 9. She came into my life at a time when I needed a friend and someone I could rely on. I had just lost more of my sight in January, so together we discovered the world. Rogue has been a friend, an entertainment, and a loyal partner in crime. She is shy and quiet, never one to cause a problem. She helped me regain my independence and taught me it’s possible to raise and train my own service dog. Over the years, we have done tracking, travelled to different places in North America, and presented at a number of conferences. When she is with me, I know everything will be okay.

For her birthday, she got a Noxgear harness to run at night, a purple light up collar for evening walks, and a pair of Ruffwear boots. I also wanted to get her something to play with, so I ordered her a Kong toy that dispenses treats.

I am sad to know our working days are coming to an end, but I know we will have many more adventures together. Please enjoy a favourite snack for the best little red girl!!!
