Instagram Roundup: February

After a few years in Portland, you become accustomed to the February Fakeout: a string of mild, sunny days that tricks you into thinking spring has begun. But inevitably the rain returns and you realize daylight saving time hasn’t even started.

Even if they don’t last, these days are a good pick-me-up for commuters coming out of a dark, damp winter. For proof, just look at the sun and the blossoms in some of your photos from the last few weeks:

Follow the glow of the distant sun.

Riding the public transit may not be an exciting occurrence for most people, but as a large group of people and dogs board the bus or train, it becomes a lot more interesting. Of course it’s not just for fun, it’s very important for our guide dog puppies to learn how to properly board public transit and sit or lay quietly and calmly while it rumbles along. As a guide dog they will likely utilize buses, trains, or other forms of public transportation with their handler so while they are in training with us we expose them to that experience, often many times, to ensure that they are comfortable and confident doing so. Our puppies had the opportunity to demonstrate just how awesome they are at that on Tuesday when we boarded a bus with ten puppies and headed to the mall for a very big outing (to be announced in the following post). #guidedogsfortheblind #Sightmasters Pictured above is now 14-month-old yellow lab, Ryan, relaxing on a commuter train on a previous club outing. He is laying down on the blue speckled floor, tucked under a seat on a raised step. The edge of the raised area is outlined with a yellow stripe. His paws are hanging over the edge, one hanging down and the other sticking straight out, and he is looking directly at the camera. #ryan
