While I am not permitted to interact with Vinson during this time of transition for him, many staff here see the little fella quite frequently. One snapped this photo this afternoon, showing Vinson is 100% himself as training time nears. As he always liked to do with people and dogs alike, Vinson is trying to force some play using a Nylabone.
More big news: Vinson has been officially assigned to an instructor and Seeing Eye dog training will begin as early as tomorrow!!!
