My Fantastic Family

I wanted to share some news about my wonderful family.
A family picture. From left to right: Halette, Hestia, Me!, Hanalei, and Hana. We're all with our raisers.

At Fun Day this year I got to see most of my siblings. I didn't get to see my two sisters Hibachi and Havasu (because she was Career Changed before Fun Day) and my brother Hermes had been turned in for his formal Guide training right before our litter meeting (bummer!). But I did get to see Hestia, Hanalei, Hana, and Halette.

We are all very little girls and we found out we have some similar personality traits. It was a lot of fun. As you know after Fun Day I was Career Changed for...being too friendly with other dogs (I just can't help it! They all look so much fun and I really, really want to play with them). But I thought I would give you an update on the rest of the Fam.

My Daddy Dylan was retired from Breeding at GDB. I heard they were all sad because Dylan was a good daddy and had great puppies. I would have to say that I agree with that statement. My Momma Aqua had her second litter of puppies. Halette and Hermes were the first to go back in for training. Halette was dropped from breeding and put back into formal Guide training. She's about halfway through her training! Hermes is in the last part of training which means he's class ready and could graduate anytime! Then Hanalei went into training. Unfortunately, Hanalei was dropped from breeding and guide work because of a cataract in her right eye. (She went home to her raisers just like me!) I haven't heard anything about Hana, but Momma is trying to find out what happened to her. I found out recently that Hestia was accepted as a GDB Breeder! Hooray! That's a pretty successful litter if you ask me. *Grin* I have an amazing family.

I hope that Momma gets to raise one of Hestia's babies when she comes back. I can't wait to her when my first litter of nieces and nephews are born!

Love and Lab Kisses,


  1. We have one of Aqua's new babies in our club! It's neat to see the similarities! He's been a super easy puppy so far - just like Hanalei was :).

  2. That's so great! What's the new Aqua baby's name?
