I've made a few changes since you were last here, so have a look at them! I've got some other stuff that I've told himself to get a move on with, but he hasn't yet, so you'll have to bookmark this page and come back in a bit to see what I've put here.
I know some of you will have seen me around the village as I keep things in order but I'll tell you a bit about myself anyway. I'm a black Labrador – had you guessed? I came to live with my people in Church Minshull in September 2016 because Guide Dogs decided I wasn't cutting the mustard. I was born on St Valentine's Day (makes up for my man-person's lack of romance) and went into Guide Dogs training at 6 weeks old.
Very young you might say but Labradors are very advanced. My people, well lady-person to be honest as the other one doesn't seem to apply himself, had done Guide Dogs puppy walking before and was looking to re-home a retired guide dog. I've just discovered that she requested a yellow lab, a boy, but got me instead: well hasn't she done well? Although I was withdrawn from Guide Dogs training for "poor stress resilience" I've got over that now and the blogs I've written will tell you all about my life in Church Minshull and some of the important things that are happening here. My man-person didn't know how to collect my previous reports together and had to have help from Mrs Challoner – thank-you Sue! I suspect that now he's stopped working his head has as well! Sue and Meikle Carrs have "shown him the way" and under my instruction he writes these things down for me. I've also shown him how to put videos on YouTube and that's where you go to see me swimming.
Sue has now left the village but she is still just a Skype call away in case (or when) himself gets in a mess with things. She's told himself how to put a changing banner across the top of the page so we'll see how he gets on with that. Well he managed it, and very good it looked in his opinion at least. He's working on some pictures of my ears flapping in the wind or me chasing a frisbee as the next changing banner. I'll believe it when I see it!
