I should introduce you to our very First graduate!
This is Teddy's cousin, Cody. He was our mom's dog but was very high energy and I simply didn't have the skills at 14 to control him and release his energy. He also had a laxating patella so while playing frisbee got his energy out we had to limit it or his knee would pop out of place /sigh/
Cody was donated to Dogs for the Deaf on July 25, 2005 and we still miss his endearing personality! It's still sad to know if I had only had the skills he would still be bringing our family delight at the ripe age of 6!
Anyway, he graduated as an arson detection dog from an organization in Texas and has been working since! No word from him and we'll never get word from him due to security reasons. He's our first working dog and we love him dearly!
