Chapter 3: THE Third Time

Welcome to Zachary and Twinkie's new blog, The Third Time's a Charm!  I honestly couldn't think of a more appropriate title to explain our story.  :)  We're so excited to meet Twinkie, a beautiful Golden Retriever, and have no doubt that she will impact Zachary's life in ways no one else ever could.   

We hope you'll follow our triumphs and challenges as we work and play for two weeks with Twinkie and the absolutely, positively AMAZING staff at 4 Paws for Ability in Xenia, Ohio.  You can subscribe to an email stream or become one of Twinkie's groupies by signing-up for our blog at the bottom of the home page.  

Be sure to comment on our daily posts so we know you're out there...we can't wait to hear from you while we're in Ohio!  Sometimes the going gets rough while you're training, so a little touch of home is always good for the soul.  :)  Thanks!  xoxoxo

  1. I love how you are calling her Miss Twinkie! I call her mom Miss Melody. I am so excited for Zachary and your family! I have not spent time with any of the Snack Cake litter since they were 7 weeks old but they all have been in my family's thoughts and prays. Being a breeding dog family and seeing the puppies make service dog, is what it is all about, like the end of a journey for us and a new beginning for the puppies and families they are matched with. Good luck and best wishes. From The Wilber's, Melody's Family :)
