Cali and Mona begin their life together

I haven't been able to update this blog in forever. It seems like there is always something else to train, do, or solve. The last few months have been a whirlwind as my new book Conversations With Cadbury was released and we got to the final details of Cali going to live with Mona. Mona and Cali have been a team now since Jun 2, 2009. Mona flew by herself to our place in Upstate NY to practice with Cali. Of course, we had to deal with the Al Hurra news coming to do a story in-between too. Nothing like the media to make the turn-over more complicated.

We returned to Dearborn Jun 9th. Cali and Mona have been together 100% since then. That's not very long in the lifetime of a guide. Guide Dog users tell me it takes 6 months to 1 year to get fully into a relationship. So, without saying another word, I'll let the photos do the talking.

And, a note to that Dutch and German TV are also doing a feature on them. They said it would be posted to Youtube. I'll post a link when I have it.
