MenoSundays; Life Lived Lovingly

Well, the news I had rather thought might be coming, has... but it's not all bad.

The good news for Fletcher is that he has been adopted by a young family in Norfolk and he has bonded quickly with the son, so he will live the life he no doubt really desires! Meanwhile, let us become acquainted with Spirit.

  2. May Fletcher get to live his best life. A colleague adopted a guide dog dropout, who was recently called to the bridge after 15 years. She said she was the best dog she ever had. May Fletcher be the same to his new family. Looking forward to Spirit's progress.

  4. We hope so much for these dogs.The trainers work so hard to get them to the starting gate! It's OK that Fletcher found a family as he was not going to be a service dog. Now we concentrate on Spirit.

  7. Sending handsome Fletcher and his new family good wishes for a wonderful life together. And how right it is that great care is taken to ensure that only the dogs with the necessary character traits are chosen to be guide dogs. We'll be looking forward to seeing how Spirit progresses.
    Cheers, Gail.

  14. Well, we are sad that Fletcher worked so hard and then didn't make it. But he learned a lot from his experience, and we bet his handler did too. We know that he will make that family very happy. We look forward to learning more about Spirit and his progress.
