Puppy Maze

This little puppy cannot find his toy anywhere. Someday he will be a guide dog, but right now he needs you to walk him through the maze to help him find his toy.

TUCKER

Hello everyone! My name is Tucker and I’m one year old. To look at me, you might be able to guess that I’m a black Labrador retriever. I bet you can’t guess what else I am though…

I am also one of the #RPuppies. Don’t know what that is?  My five brothers and sisters and I are training to become guide dogs for Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind and we have been adopted by the Ottawa Redblacks. That means that we get to go to the stadium for practices and home games, get to meet the fans and play with the players, and we go to other events too! I like to pretend I’m like the football players on the field, although they are all a bit bigger than I am.

When I’m not on the football field – gosh I like the way that sounds – I live with my foster mom and my two human foster brothers. I will live with them while I finish going to school – yes, I have to go to school, just like you! – and while I complete my training to someday be a real guide dog, I actually really like going to school because I get to see my brothers and sisters and when I work really hard, I get so much praise. Does your teacher give you praise when if you do well at school?

During the day, I follow my mom around and I get to go wherever she goes – to the store, the library, to the movies, even to a special home we go to where a lot of older people live. Boy, do they love to see me there!  At night, I like to follow my dad around, or to snuggle up with my brothers.

My human brothers don’t play football, but they do play hockey, so the arena is another place I get to spend a lot of time. I don’t go on the ice. I think that would be slippery.

Speaking of slippery, what did you think of that snow stuff we just had? Wow!  It was amazing! Things are starting to smell a little different now and the air feels a little different than it has the past few months. I’m looking forward to seeing what comes next!

MINDY

Hello I’m Mindy. I have ten brothers and sisters who are just like me. We are all being raised to be guide dogs for Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. We don’t all live together. We each live with our volunteer puppy raisers. Mine takes me out to lots of places, sometimes just to play and meet other friends, and sometimes wearing my guide dog in training jacket to show that I’m learning how to work. When I wear my jacket, I get to go into stores and malls, ride on buses and go to other places most dogs don’t get to go. At home I have a cat named Mouse that I get to play with and human siblings who love to play with me. I also have a dog neighbour who I get to play with in the yard, which I love.
