Squeeee!  How is this for a project?  Maine Region of Guiding Eyes for the Blind is looking for people to raise puppies that will then be trained as service dogs. According to centralmaine.com you would have the pup for about 15 months teaching it to be a well behaved, friendly dog. There is support and vet care they provide.  Oh ya and the joy of having and raising a puppy that is going to make such a difference in the world.
