Growing up Guide Pup - Week 39 - Film Festival

This week was really cool. We were able to go to a film festival, and represent what we do as puppy raisers. Everyone wanted to know about Ricki, and had lots of questions. The most common question I got was "How do you give them up?". Ricki is our 10th dog now, and I really feel like you need to raise several before things can be put into perspective. Answering such a question is really easy for me now. When you see how much guide dogs can change the lives of their visually impaired partners, it really is not even a question how do you give them up, but how can you not give them up. It is very rewarding to do something nice for humanity, and I really like that our series also can demonstrate that giving back is cool. I personally feel that we should see more of this sort of thing in our county because it would make it a better place to live. We can all be so wrapped up in our own lives sometimes.

Our series was in the web series category at the festival. We didn't win first prize, but it really doesn't matter. I feel like we were winners getting to spread the message and meet some great people from the entertainment industry. Thanks for showing your support.
