Cameron got matched!!!!!! He is on the list for the July class. He is among six other dogs that were all raised in Florida. Assuming that this match is a good one and he does not get sent back IFT for any reason, I will be attending Puppy Raiser Day next weekend at the Southeastern campus. I am looking forward to it!!! He has made me very proud!! I knew he could do it.
I will get to watch Cameron and his forever person work a route together as a team. When all of the students have worked their route for their raisers to see, we all go inside the Administrative building so that we actually get to meet the person. We get to exchange information about ourselves. I will get to tell Cameron's new owner lots of stories about Cameron (at least the good ones).
After PR Day is over, I would love to go see Hugh and Jesse again and maybe the Cameron's (Cameron's sponsors) too. We will see if our schedules permit us to do this. I will be taking tons of pictures so be on the lookout for more posts.
