Tucker introduced us to the world of puppy-raising. We picked him up from the Southwest Regional headquarters of Canine Companions for Independence on January 25, 2005, and life haven’t been the same ever since.

Yuli was the first female we raised for CCI.  Irrepressible and given to bursts of wild merriment, she was released for a “lack of ability to control her impulses.”

Puppy #5: Dionne

Puppy #5: Dionne

Of the 9 puppies (CCI and non-) that Steve and I have raised, Dionne was the most mischievous and creative. While those traits can be highly entertaining, they’re not great for a Canine Companion. She was released in September of 2014 and now lives with a wonderful couple in northern California.
