The Canine Companions for Independence Hero Litter is now four weeks old. We're continuing to spotlight this litter on our Wordless Wednesday posts.

Now that the Hero puppies have hit their four week milestone, this means we're at the halfway mark with only four weeks left to watch them on the Eukanuba Puppy Cam livestream.

It's been a big week for these furries, what with their new playground area full of sensory experiences and their introduction to solid food with the Eukanuba weaning diet.

Somebody call James Lipton

Even my back side is my good side.
Can't go wrong here.
What's with the index cards, Food Lady? asks Euka. Aren't you supposed to be writing about me on my website? It is Sunday, you know. Oh hey, here's my best side. Take a picture. Heh, who am I kidding. All my sides are my best side.

Ah, Euka, glad you're here, I say, setting down my pen. I was just about to call you. You are correct, my love. It's indeed your turn for this week's Story Sunday on the dog blog. Which, I need to remind you again, isn't just your website, Princess Golden Hair. You need to share the glory with the other four leggers that live here.

Not, says Euka. Fair. 

Anyway, kiddo, I say. I've been thinking about how you're starting dog college next month and since you've been kind of a celebrity ...

Kind of? Euka tosses her ears back. Hello? I've been on television!

Right. I say. But only because we hooked up the laptop to the plasma screen. Still, it was pretty awesome to watch you over those first eight weeks of your little, furry life. I remember watching from your first day in the world -you and your extraordinary E littermates- when you all were livestreamed by Eukanuba.* You critters worked it hard to build your fan base over those two months in California. 

Then we welcomed your little polar bear self at our place here in Ohio (The Heart of America!) and we've been telling your stories to your fierce and loyal followers for the last year and a half.  All our adventures together and now ... just a sec. Darn it, hold on. I have something in my eye.

I pause to dab at my eyes. Blow my nose. And now, Euka, we have only five weeks left. [sniffle] So I was thinking, let's do an interview before you leave here to start dog college.

An interview? asks Euka. You mean when we talk about me and nothing else? I'm in. You may start.

The Canine Companions for Independence Hero Litter is three weeks old and have we got even more adorable photos to share with y'all.

Now that the Hero puppies have hit their three week milestone, this means we only have another five weeks to watch them on the Eukanuba Puppy Cam livestream.

Things are going to start moving quickly now, you know. Eyes are opening, muscles are forming and the furries will be up on their feet and romping out in the way that carefree puppies do.

It's just dog nature

Holy mother of dog. Please tell me
that's not what you're wearing to
the dinner,
says Micron. Don't make
me call your mom.
Are we doing anything Saturday night? I glance up to see The Husband holding his iPhone to his chest.

I dunno, I say, Just a sec. I fire up my Droid for a quick look at the social calendar.

Nope, looks clear, I say. That task completed, I go back to my laptop and refocus on pinning vintage dog photos on Pinterest (Dogs of Yore board).

Huh. Well, this will be interesting, he says.

Whazzat? I look up in alarm. Did I just agree to something? Darn it, Pinterest.

Looks like the boss can't attend a dinner to accept an award on behalf of the business, says The Husband. So he asked us to go in his place.

It's a semi-formal dinner, he continues. For the 445th Airlift Wing of the Air Force. I guess we won a community partner award. Yeah so apparently this dinner is a pretty big deal and we'll be seated at the front table. Supposed to be a senator there and ...

Oh, do stop, I say. You had me a semi-formal.

Lookit, I'm not a fancy girl.

Wordless Wednesday: Hero Litter at Two Weeks

Photo by Chris Kittredge Photography

The Canine Companions for Independence Hero Litter is two weeks old and have we got some ridiculously adorable photos to share with y'all.

Click here to see the Week Two photo session as presented to us by Chris Kittredge Photography.  Oh, but be sure you have the spare minute. Just a guess here, but you find yourself rolling through the album a couple of times to absorb all the essence of this sweet puppy goodness.

Now that the Hero puppies have hit their two week milestone, this means we only have another six weeks to watch them on the Eukanuba Puppy Cam livestream.

Things are going to start moving quickly now, you know. Eyes are opening, muscles are forming and the furries will be up on their feet and romping out in the way that carefree puppies do.

This calls for the Class A uniform

Come a little closer. I can't lick you yet.

I reach for the light blue bandanna on the kitchen counter and turn to Micron.

Dress, I say to him.

My big yellow dog lowers his noggin and slips into the open loop. He looks up at me, expectant. The Tail of Wondrous Beauty is slowly wagging.

You know what, big guy? I say. I think tonight's event calls for full Class A uniform. Let's put your working cape on and get you all official looking.

Getting ready
Micron turns the dial on his tail from Slow to Oh Heck Yeah as I put the logo cape on him. He knows we have an adventure coming up. What is it? Micron has no idea, but from experience he's pretty darn sure this is gonna be a good time.

Because he's going to work.

Once attired in full gear, Micron runs to the Toyota and prances at the car door, looking back at me.

C'mon two-legger! Let's go! he says. We're burnin' daylight here.

And so I secure the therapy dog in the back seat, turn the key, and we hit the road to meet us some Cub Scouts to talk about the jobs of working dogs.

I didn't expect any real challenges for the evening. After all, Micron is a true professional, highly trained in the skills of pet therapy and the like. So with confidence and a loose leash, we strut our stuff into the entrance of our venue, an elementary school.

Ok, let's pause here for just a moment. So who has now, or ever, born witness to the entrance of an elementary school at the end of a long, cold winter? Yeah? So you know what I mean when I mention the ubiquitous sight that heralds Spring along with the song of the red breasted robin, right?
