Pupdate: Congrats to Ruby's Sis, Rowena

Just got a tweet from puppy raiser @KatieEGriffin letting me know that Ruby's sister, Rowena, finished advanced training and has been paired up with a partner! Congratulations to Rowena, her new partner, and Rowena's puppy raisers and trainers.

Rowena's the little yellow triplet on the right.

Thanks for the pupdate, Katie! You and your family raised an awesome dog!

6/16 - Very Special Pupdate!  Rowena's new partner, Shannon, left some very kind words in the comments that truly touched my heart. Be sure to visit Shannon's blog, Living with a Service Dog, where she'll share stories of her and her family's life with service dog Rowena.

I feel kinda funny posting as I have never left a comment, but I have been reading your blog for the past two years and have LOVED it! :) I started my application through CaPR about two years ago, and I thought that I would comment here because Rowena was actually paired with me. We are starting our placement training in July and I can't wait for her to join our family!!
I have valued all of your posts as they have helped me understand everything that goes into raising a service dog. It truly helped me see the love and care that they are given from day one.
Many thanks to you and everyone helping in raise these amazing service dogs! :)
