Zinfandel's Turn-In Day

Zinfandel and Kristi had a very safe and smooth journey to Washington, KS to turn her into KSDS, Inc. She is now in the transition phase, getting used to the kennels and will have her medical testing completed on Friday, at Kansas State University, (a big shout out to them for all they do for KSDS). Kristi made it safely back to MN and is surprised at how much she misses that sweet girl and their daily routine of exercise, training and grooming. (Anybody want to make wagers on how much weight Kristi gains in the next three weeks!?!) Lee misses his buddy big time. But Zinfandel is where she belongs and we are grateful to KSDS for allowing us to be a small part of the amazing process to give an individual the independence they so need and we all take for granted. Best wishes to one of God's sweetest souls.
Interesting sunrise, two hours into our journey.

The engineer must not have gotten the memo that we were in a hurry!

Wondering where we are going, now!

Proud to be a KSDS pup in formal training!

Dog interaction testing.

Off to the kennels and her next phase of life.


  1. Kristi, turn ins are hard. It is so exciting and hopeful, but extremely sad at the same time. I've been thinking about you all week. Congratulations to you on such a job well done, and gook luck to Zinfandel!!!

    1. Thanks, Hannah, it's great to have a support network who gets it!
