Five months after having met Lana, Connie Delamater never imagined her heart would feel so full. It's hard for her to believe that in as little as eleven months she'll prepare to say, "Goodbye."
"It's kind of like waving as your kids go off to college, but it's puppy college," she said. "And it's in Oceanside California."
Even though saying, "Goodbye," will be difficult, "The joyful part of this, is that hopefully Lana is destined to become a service dog or a skilled companion dog," Delamater said, "It's going to be tough giving her up."
