Exciting news.

Post by ParrotHeadInThe Making »

Good morning fellow Parrot Heads. I received the best birthday present a day early yesterday. In June, my guide dog of 10 years, Ms Sammie, passed away. Needless to say, losing Ms Sammie has been rough. She was the best 4-legged Parrot Head, and she traveled with me on many adventures. The grief process has been happening as it should, and time is making things manageable. I will always miss Sammie, and a new dog will never take her place, but I need and want another dog in my life. Yesterday, I received a phone call from the guide dog school where I received Sammie 10 years ago, and in October I will be going to class to be trained with my new dog. This is exciting news, and now I can start the process of getting my life back.

This past week, I traveled to Pittsburgh to see JB, and I had a wonderful time. A lot of beautiful Parrot heads from this board were there to make sure that I was a part of it all, and I had a much needed fantastic time; however, someone was missing from the party, and that someone was Ms Sammie. Once my new dog is comfortable with its life with me and the routine of my life I sure hope that this dog will have some of the opportunities that Ms Sammie had which include Parrot Head adventures.

It's the child in us we really value
Here we are, with our fins up and our feathers flashing
Here we are, with our coconut shell brassieres chanting
