Christy and Aiden at Dogs 4 Diabetics team up

What a exciting week… we’ve placed another new #D4DTeam… Christy and Aiden! This new duo will be working hard to meet graduation requirements so they can make their life-saving partnership official. Congratulations you two… we’re thrilled for you both – the perfect match!

A special thanks to all who had a hand in helping make this powerful partnership possible… especially D4D’s Foster Care Providers, our volunteers, and our Puppy Raising friends at Guide Dogs for the Blind!

Yuma Fun Day 2016

Brian, Rancher, Aiden and Fisher made the journey to the annual Yuma AZ Fun Day 2016. Fisher met his sister Faith there too.

OCTA Service Dog Training Day | October 1, 2016

BAARK participated in the OCTA Service Dog Training Day. OCTA allows all service dogs to ride the bus to and from the ARTIC/Downtown Disney. It was a warm day so we met early and rode the bus, had breakfast and wandered around Downtown Disney allowing the puppies to experience going in and out of stores, ride the tram, etc. Always a fun event.

Metrolink to SJC | September 24, 2016

BAARK Guide Dog Puppy Raisers Margaret, Rod, Mike, Jeanne and Mari took the Metrolink Train to San Juan Capistrano with Brian, Rancher and Aiden.

Hollywood Bowl Photos | A Chorus Line July 30, 2016

I was very excited about the success of the Guide Dogs for the Blind Puppies in Training and Working Guide Dogs the Annual Hollywood Bowl outing. It was so good to meet new raisers and handlers at the picnic and inside of the venue. There were 30 dogs and 92 humans in attendance. The seating, as always, was great. Thank you all for making this years event a success.

11th Annual Vision Walk | June 11, 2016

Today was the 11th Annual Vision Walk at Angel Stadium. Last year was super hot – this year was cool and light showers. A very comfortable walk if you don’t mind going home with a wet puppy.

Fisher, Brian, Aiden and Rancher were in attendance. We also had Career change Mobley with us.
