My First Birthday

Cameron here,

I wanted to tell you about my birthday adventure:

Mom, dad, baby, and I all spent the day looking for a new car for mommy. I got to go to a lot of dealerships and look around, the pavement was very hot though on my paw pads and I didn't like that. All of the workers at the dealerships greeted me and gave me lots of attention, especially when mom told them it was my birthday. They were all impressed at my good behavior and how I listened to my commands, not to mention, how calm I was throughout the looking process.

Mom was getting discouraged at not finding the right car for the right price until we came to the last dealership. The last dealership we went to was in Concord and this is where she found the right car, with all the right features, for the right price. It is a Kia Rio hatchback....meaning I have my own space in the very back of the car to sit if mom wants me to sit there. We were greeted by an associate when we first got the and he showed us this car and let us take it for a spin. They didn't mind me riding along one bit. Mom loved the car instantly so they talked about buying and it went from there. I waited patiently for them to finish and all of the other associates really loved me and loved how good I was.

I really made an impression on people today. Mom is so proud of me and how far I have come in my training as a guide dog candidate. Mom knows I will do well at the school when it is my time to shine. But for now, I will be her Cameron and that's all I could want for my birthday! (I got an extra treat though)

Love from your dearest,
