So I got an email instead:
We are pleased to confirm that your application for a Guide Dog has been accepted and a place is reserved for you in our San Rafael three week class that begins Monday, February 15 and graduates Saturday, March 6, 2010.
Yay!!!!!!!!!! Words cannot express how excited I am!! Wow!!!!
So, of course I had to look up the puppy pool results. So far, tied for the lead are:
February 15 Carin, Maddie and Toby
No one is out of the running though, as there are so many other factors. To refresh your memory, here are the pool results.
Everyone said I’d get a phone call, Don included. Then people on my email list said I wouldn’t hear until the holidays were over. Today I’ve just been crocheting and tracking packages and ambled over to check my email and the subject line said “Guide Dogs for the Blind”. I arrowed over to listen to the name and didn’t recognize it and when I opened the message, I had to listen like 3 times before it sunk in! They are sending a packet of info with a cd of class lectures and suggested things to pack. My travel arrangements will be made soon. And I go to San Rafael for 3 weeks on February 15th. I’m just in shock! This means I’ll be back in time for choir to start up, and for my friend’s baby shower. Wow!!!
Carin, I told GDB to notify me in time so you’d have this post and emails for Christmas hahaha!!!
Yayaya!!! My pooch is waiting for me at school as I write this. Wow. I wonder who it is? Wow!!!
