Let's see, what have I been doing? I entered a photo contest at QBE where my daddy works. I entered because I wanted to thank QBE for giving my organization a signed and framed Sydney Swans jersey to auction at the annual ADA dinner. I got an honorable mention in the photo contest. Last week I did a few demonstrations. At the demonstrations, we teach people about Assistance Dogs. Everyone knows about Guide Dogs but not very many people know about Assistance Dogs. Here is a picture of me with a few of the ladies at the Killara Lawn Bowling Club where I did the demo last Tuesday. On Wednesday I did a demo at the Bexley Community Center and on Friday I went on a corporate walk in the city with employees of Genworth Financial. Here is a picture of me with two of the Genworth employees. We had a big Thanksgiving dinner at our house last Thursday. There were about 30 people and I didn't jump up on anyone. It has taken me a long time to learn not to jump up to say hello to people but I have finally learned!!!

Hi. I am Willow. I am a shiny, 10 -week old black lab. I have a gentle temperament and I am very happy and confident. I enjoy chewing on toys and helping with vacuuming and sweeping. Currently, I am working on becoming potty-trained.

I spent the weekend with Quinta and her family. Today, I am moving into my new home with my puppy-raisers. I fit in really well with Quinta and her family and I know that I will adjust quickly to my new home as well.

If you want to sponsor me and keep up with my progress, please contact the Assistance Dogs Australia office.HERE is a photo album of me with pictures from this weekend.

Halloween Puppy School

I had class last night. It was Halloween so I wore Bella's pumpkin costume. Below is a picture of me in the pumpkin hat, watching and listening to my teacher, Carol.After the other puppies arrived costume-less, I undressed. We had a fun play-time before class. I took a dip in the little pool.
Ursula went in the pool after me. Lockey, who is already into his advanced training, hung out with us during play time. There were only three of us during class - Ubu, Ursula and me.
