We got another call from Stu at CCI this morning, informing us that Brando’s “pre-match” with Yuriy and Aimee has been confirmed. He is definitely set to graduate Friday.
Seasoned CCI puppyraisers do talk about at least one dog who made it all the way to the day of graduation, only to bolt at a cat — and be summarily released. But I can’t imagine Brando doing something like that.
I also cannot wait to see him again after the brunch Friday morning that will introduce us to his new owners. Once it’s over, we’ll get to spend about 20 final minutes playing with him and once again stroking his velvety, velvety fur. And taking pictures that will assuredly be posted here.
