Bye, Bye Colorado

Hello GDB!
It took some last minute scheduling changes, but on February 12th, my parents and I fly out to California! I am really excited! But I am also nervous for the speech...if anyone has any suggestions on what I should say please let me know!
Thanks for all your support! I am hoping to catch up on blogs soon!

Congratulations, Maddie...that is such wonderful news that not only is Gabrina graduating, you get to be there!!!

Hooray for Gabrina! How exciting for you! I don't have any ideas on the speech, though--sorry!

Emily and Keno said...

That's awesome! Congrats! See you at graduation, as Burgess graduates that day too ;)

How exciting! Congratulations to you and Gabrina. I will most likely be there- can't wait to see Gabrina with her new partner.

About the graduation speech, they don't have to be that long. My favorites are when the puppy raisers share a short story about their dog or a special moment, describe the bond between them, and talk about the unique talents and personality of their dog.

A good ending is always wishing the team for many adventures together. You can also visit the website for the puppy club Have Paws Will Travel- they have some great recommendations for graduation speeches, and recommendations for graduation gifts too! The link is

How great that you are able to make it! Have a fun time.

Cabana and I were at graduation today. Sorry I didn't get to meet you and Gabrina--but I was excited to get to see Gabrina graduate. Her partner seems like a terrific person!

Don and I were in the crowd at graduation today. Your speech was very touching and Gabrina looked so happy with her new partner, who seems very nice! It really seemed like a perfect match. Too bad we didn't get to meet you and Gabrina, but I really enjoyed getting to see Gabrina up on stage graduating! Congratulations!
