TO BROADWAY! Just about every day for the past 14 months I've shared an office with BROADWAY, the magnificent puppy who was being trained for GUIDE DOGS FOR THE BLIND by my friend and coworker BARB DASCHEL. Today, she's not coming. Her early training is done, so now she's off to the GUIDE DOG campus in Boring to see what her next step will be. She'll either become a breeder so she can make more cool pups like her, or she'll go on to be trained to be a Guide Dog for a visually impaired person. Wherever her career leads, we at KGON know she'll be one of the best. She will be missed, but we look forward to having a new puppy arrive in the next month or so. BROADWAY - thanks for all the joy you brought into our lives and good luck with your next challenge! PEEK AT THE WEEK:
