INTRODUCING, FLICKA LINK!

First of all, not enough can be made of the name Flicka Link! I mean, REALLY! Don't you just feel happy saying it? Next time you get the blues, try saying Flicka Link three times fast and I bet you smile in spite of yourself. Am I not right?

"C," Flicka and Rojo walking the grounds of Guide Dogs of Oregon, getting to know each other.


Practicing commands and using positive reinforcement.


"C," Woohoo, Flicka Link and Rojo-de-do-de-do


Using "tie down" under my desk - I know it looks mean, but this tells the dog, "You can relax now, you're off duty."


See?

Right by Rojo-de-do's bed, no more checking on him every 8 minutes! : )

And to all a good night.

What a beautiful dog! And how lucky are you to yell "Flicka Lick" all day! Congrats!

Even knowing this was coming, I'm overwhelmed by the beauty and rightness of it, typing this through tears. She's as gorgeous as a dog can be (even Toby would agree), and it's clear she belongs in your family. Flicka Link, welcome home. Love to you all.

Just incredible....

Lovely boy and lovely dog.

Flicka Link- I like it.

Can I change my name to Suzy Link?

I can be the missing link...


Sorry- it's early.

Great choice for Rojo and the family!

She's beautiful. There is no love like the love of a dog when you're a kid, even an adult actually. Now I'm missing my dogs.

You drank the Kool Aid. And damn. It looks good.

Wow! Wow!

Me said...

She's been there, what? a day?, and already no more checking on him every 8 minutes. She has already taken some of the load off of you.

This brings tears to my eyes... Oh my G - I am such a sap!!

Jerri said...

I must understand--has Flicka's presence really released you from checking every 8 minutes? And Rojo feels safe and happy?

If I have that right...OMHOG!!!!

Welcome home, Flicka. Welcome home.

Doing the happy dance here.
