That's right, I finally got news on Gabrina!

Here is the email I got from my leader today. I don't feel like rewriting it...
During the meeting Wed we heard from Barb (our CFR) that
Gabrina and Leola are in the final stage of breeder evaluation.
It is not yet a "done deal". The testing will take a week or two.
We'll hear for sure if they become breeders.

Congratulations to Gabrina and Leola's raisers. Job well done.
To be chosen as a breeder is considered a higher
prestige than simply being a

We will not know if they are going to be a one-time
breeder then become a guide
or not (yet)
That is often determined after the 1st liter.

That's all I know for now, but I'm happy to hear something!

Guess who I saw today? Gabrina! I was walking Don through the Guide Dog kennels to go to the vet for his 16 wk vaccinations, and noticed a beautiful yellow lab giving me one of those adorable, giant labby grins. I looked at the name plate on her kennel and noticed it was Gabrina. She's looking great and VERY happy in her doggy run- she's got the perfect kennel near the main walkway for watching all the people and dogs stroll by.

Thank you so much for telling me about Gabrina! I am so excited to hear that someone has seen her! I'm glad she seems happy too. And I'm sure she is loving having a kennel where she can see exciting things. She has always been a watcher.

Thank you so much!
