Cal Academy and Graduation

Cabana had a busy weekend! On Saturday, we went to the Guide Dogs graduation ceremony. I had never even been to the campus before, and I was impressed at how beautiful it is. The graduation was very well attended, and because we were a few minutes late and couldn't find parking easily, we ended up sitting in the grass in back, which was fine with us.

Here's a photo of Cabana being petted by some very adoring fans. Yes, she does have the little boy's hand in her mouth, embarrassingly enough--but one look at his face and you can see that he's not in any distress. The little boy was actually quite delighted, but honestly, she doesn't mouth people very often anymore--but who's going to believe me when it's been documented on camera!?!
The thing I really love about this photo is how evident it is that Cabana just makes people smile. It's such a treat to get to see that every day.

Then, on Sunday, we went to the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. We hadn't been there since they remodeled, and it is really GORGEOUS. We spent the whole day there, going to the aquarium, having lunch in the cafe, and ending with a show in the Morrison Planetarium. Cabana was terrific, despite the large crowds and even the loud movie in the planetarium. She has such an outgoing personality that with her, the more people around, the merrier she is.

There were all kinds of exotic animals--sting rays, jellyfish, snakes, alligators and eels. But it often seemed that people were more interested in this ordinary little yellow puppy wearing a green jacket than in all the animals that they paid to see!

Congratulations on being presented on Guide Dog's blog!!!

I was also at the graduation with my 2 pups, and I ended up presenting a dog on stage. We must have missed each other! =D Cabana looks like such a sweet girl. I wish you luck with her in the future!
