Cranberry the wonder dog and owner Janine Prindle had a good weekend.

Cranberry, the yellow lab who is Janine’s guide dog – she’s legally blind – earned her certificate as a utility dog.

Next step?

“We’re going to compete ( at the Seattle Kennel Club show March 9-10 at CenturyLink Field Event Center) for her versatility certificate,” Janine said. “We’ll be there at 8 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday, and if she passes both days, she’ll have qualified.”

After that, Janine said, Cranberry may just keep her day job as a guide dog. If so, Janine will continue training her second dog – a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever named Corey.

Here’s the column on Janine and Cranberry.  Lovely, determined woman. Beautiful dog.
