Meet Yoshi...

Here she is!  My new little Future Dog Guide foster puppy, Yoshi.  My friend Leslie put this water bottle beside her so you could get an idea of just how tiny she was when she first came home!

Last weekend we participated in the Ride for Dog Guides, where the foster puppies visited and cuddled with many of the motorcycle riders that participated in the fundraiser.*

Yoshi enjoyed playing with some of the older puppies when we first arrived. Then it was time to put on their jackets and wait for the motorcycles to complete the ride.



Yoshi had the opportunity to meet Nettle, a diabetic alert dog guide who started working about a year ago.

Once the rides arrived at the end of the route, Yoshi was able to check out some of the side cars and saddle bags on the motorcycles.  She's hoping next year she can get her paws on a helmet so she can ride along!

 

How cool is this vintage side car?!

But the cosiest ride was Johnny's saddle bag. It was just my size!
