I completely forgot to update after Vito's evals.
Well, Vito was career changed during evals. He just was not happy doing guide work, and I saw it. I was stressed out because I knew he was stressed out. It was not a good thing for him, and guide work unfortunately was not in his future.
BUT, I am in his future! I am way too attached to say goodbye to my little man. He is flourishing as a pet. I have taught him a lot of tricks and we work on his manners. He is so food motivated he makes it easy. Plus, he is just so smart. We are working on testing for his CGC, and from there will get involved in agility or rally.
We cuddle every night in my bed and life could not be any better. I wanted to puppy raise again for GDA, but I am attending UC Davis next fall, so a move is in my near future.
Vito says Merry Christmas!
