HE MADE A MATCH!!!!!!

Dembre made a match!!!!!! *dancing around*. He is matched with a lady from Minnesota. I'm so proud and I'm almost speechless. There have been a lot of tears of joy. I would have posted sooner, but I happened to be at a debate tournament over the last two days!

The feeling of pride and success is so overwhelming. People keep on congratulating me and I hardly know what to say. I'm so breath taken. My dog has made his match. He is working with his new partner and they're getting along great. He is no longer "my dog". I'm stunned. There's nothing else really to say other than that I praise God that he allowed Dembre to become a miracle.

Dreaming of the future............

    1. Thank you! I never thought that I'd really get that excited feeling, because I know that my puppy MADE it! When I was working with him I had high hopes, but always some doubts! I'm just amazed that he has almost graduated!
