Picture Of The Day: Tracy Warner

Meet Tracy Warner. She is an adorable, down to earth, stylish and poised yellow Labrador.

Everyone has a story, right? It turns out, so does Tracy. Feel free to bring in the tissues, if you so wish.

This is how she came to be a member of the family.

Dany’s, that’s her cute, sweet, polite, well mannered and free spirit big sister, yes I could use all the adjectives in the book because she is all of the above and then some, friend and neighbor living across the street, was training Tracy’s brother to be a guide dog in order to earn girl scout badge.

As fate would have it, Tracy was meant to be a Warner.

The family heard about Tracy as homes were also being shopped with the same objective for her.

She stayed and trained, basic training and obedience, with the family for a year, at one point living across the street from her brother – I can just imagine the play dates – moving then to dog guide training school for the blind for a year and half. She proudly passed at number one.

Having earned her scrubs, she was paired up with a lady but it didn’t work out. She developed a chronic ear infection and under the strenuous circumstances, it became apparent the lady no longer could care for her hence she was returned to the Warner’s on a Mother’s day of all days.

Tracy has officially retired from her duties due to her debilitating conditions but she is extremely active.

She is seven years old and is on a special diet because of her allergies to corn and grain.

No, she has not forgotten her tricks. She has learned many others.

Hot tamales everyone!
