I'm Coming Home! (by: Carlo)

Hi everybody... it's me... CARLO! I bet you're all wondering what I'm doing writing from doggie college (aka advanced training). Well, here's the deal. College was fine and everything... but, I decided it wasn't really for me.

CCI called my puppy raiser earlier today to break the news to her. They told her that they had been training me to be a skilled companion. Skilled companion dogs are typically placed with kids. And, that created just an itty bit teeny weeny problem for me. As many of you out there already know... kids kind of FREAK ME OUT. I tend to want to hide from them. They are just sorta scary... they make weird noises and their arms flail about all over the places, they smell odd, and they drool and screech... and, geesh, who wouldn't that freak out?!!

Anyways, CCI is really good about listening to dogs and realizing when they do and don't want to do something. It finally came to a point where I didn't want to do the college thing any more. I wanted to go home. So, CCI gave me my wish and released me. And guess what? I'M COMING HOME!!!

My puppy raiser is coming tomorrow to pick me up! I heard that she's got a new CCI puppy now named Gerrit! I can't wait to play with him! And, I can't wait to see Lucky again... and even that crazy parrot, Ashley! Most of all, I can't wait to see my puppy raiser. I've really missed her during the 4 months I've been here... and I have a feeling she's really missed me too.

I'm coming home! My bags are packed and I'm ready to go! Home, here I come! :-)

Hey Carlo, its your pal in NY Amy. I am so happy for you and your puppyraiser are going to be able to share more great times together. I bet college was really tough, but I think being apart from your best friends was even tougher. I am so happy for you. I am going to try my best when I go to college, but I am already thinking about how much I am going to miss my person. Kids dont scare me, open stairs do! I am working on it but I dont know. Congratulations! I bet there will be a big party for you when you get home - please let me know all about it and welcome home!
