First Family visits!

My first family came to Salem and visited me Saturday!!  It was so much fun to see them.  We are going to go to the reunion together in October.  

We reminisced about "old times" and they said when Guide Dogs called them and I had been "rejected" due to allergies, they said they could not take me, since at that time they were training Zorba.  They really wanted me back, but could not.  Guide Dogs said... "well, Kennedy will be hard to place, since he is a big black male dog".   Well, lo and behold...two weeks past and there was my mom's application, asking for a BIG BLACK MALE!  We were made for each other!

They also said their other "puppy trainees" all received a "golden parachute" when the program was complete & they were adopted...but that I got the "platinum parachute" -- meaning that I got extremely lucky with my home and family -- and that includes all my grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins!!

Lucy and Me - 2 that understand GPS

Reading on Cousin Megan's blog...and she writes about Lucy who has an uncanny way of knowing where she is and sense of direction.  Considering her age, it is remarkable. is their blog site.

I think Lucy and I could be a great team.  I know EXACTLY how to find Starbucks, Great Harvest Company and Nordstrom Cafe.  We could just team up together in downtown Portland one day and just "go for it"...I think Lucy would enjoy the "pink cookies" as much as I do!!

Reunion Information

I will finally learn the names of my siblings, as we will get a certificate of  my parents and siblings!  We all know they begin with a "K"!

The Guide Dogs for the Blind have set up this great website on the reunion, and I can find out if my littermates are far, there is only me listed there!  It is a great website..especially if you need a good dog name...Cadbury and Gucci especially appealed to me!

Above is the site...I am the one in the river...I thought it might hide my waistline!
