About Robbie

Hello, I am Robbie, a yellow Labrador Retriever. My birthday is October 5, 2016. I am on my way to graduating this year. I still enjoy playing like a puppy. I am very confident, and I like to be rolled around on a rolling chair.

From Robbie's Handlers

"I didn’t realize how deep my feelings really are for Robbie until you guys talked about him leaving. I was feeling irritated, numb, and distant. I didn’t want to talk to people. When people tried talking to me I just wanted to leave. Normally I wouldn’t take the time to analyze my emotions, however I have learned from working with Robbie that I need to be aware of what is going on in me, so I decided to go running. (That's one of my coping tools.) As I was running I realized that I was irritated and numb because I was anticipating the loss of Robbie who has been a part of my life for almost two years. I was hurt and grieved over his departure. My time with Robbie has been a blessing. Sometimes it has been hard, but I have never experienced a relationship like the one we have together. I’ve never put this kind of work into a relationship for this long. I generally try to guard myself against getting too attached, but admittedly I recognize I love him. Building this relationship has also helped me in other areas. I apply the principles I learned with Robbie with my kinds and the results are evident. I have a wonderful relationship with them now. I’m so thankful for this opportunity and I am sad it is almost over." -Kris Blehm
