Guide Dog Brogan

This post is from Mike:

I'm coming up on my 13th birthday in two weeks. That got me thinking about some of my brothers and sisters. My mom raised my litter herself, along with my real mommy, Holly. Holly left us a couple of years back. Holly had two puppy-sets. I was in the first set.

The above photo is of me when I was just a little guy (I'm in the middle!). Holly is on the left, and Chuck is on the right.

Anywho, I was thinking of one of my little brothers. One puppy from the second litter was purchased by Guide Dogs for the Blind. They named him "Guide Dog Brogan". Being Internet-savvy, I went ahead and Googled him. I found a nice story about him!

Read all about Brogan and his human!

Here is a photo of one of the puppies in Brogan's litter, at four weeks of age. Mom knows it is one of the four boys, so it may well be Brogan himself.

Splash did you manually change the size in the code when you tried to post your movie? If it's too small increase the size in the code.

You can always post it and have me look at it and I'll tell you how to fix it.......if I can.

Those are super great pictures. Probably the best looking dogs in town I would guess. And well-behaved to stay there and pose for the picture!

Oh I loved reading about Brogan, and what adorabe pictures!

Good for Brogan. He is a real hero.

What a family! Your were such a cutie! Of course, you still are. I don't know what happened to my family. I feel that all my friends in Blogland are my family.

I think my humans will be on a holiday/business trip in two weeks. So I better wish you a great Happy B-Day now, just in case. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Splash, thanks for all the cool info on Brogan the guide dog. My people have been really sad lately because on of our best friends has an illness that has cost her both of her legs. That's why they've been going out of town so much and we've been staying in the city. It made my mom happy to realize that maybe our friend could get a dog to help her out with things.

Is Chuck your dad?
