Hubbell (Bubbles) Labrador AKA Aster II --is an effusive female yellow Labrador. Born December 21, 1997, she was raised in Virginia and graduated from Guiding Eyes Yorktown Heights, NY on February 26, 2000.

You can read Bubbles life story in her own words on this blog. Hubbell worked for 11 years and 2 months as a guide-dog and went to sleep peacefully on April 11, 2011
These pictures were taken while I was out in Seattle at the end of July 2000.
These five pictures were taken on May 20, 2001 during a summer picnic at De Anza Park in Sunnyvale CA.
Thanks to the excellent meeting facilities provided by Phillips NY-- and the wonderful members of the XForms working group, Hubbell Labrador participated fully at the September 2001 XForms FTF-- these pictures taken by Josef Dietl show her in action during the meeting. Rather than lying quietly under the table all day long, she got to play with her toy --and at times co-chaired the meeting while at other times conveyed her overall feelings about what we were discussing.
These pictures were taken October 11, 2001 by my friend Suresh.
Here are pictures from the trip to Copenhagen, Denmark where Bubbles and I attended the XForms FTF. The meeting was to have been across the border in Sweden, but it was too complicated to take a guide-dog to Sweden, and we moved the meeting to Denmark --thanks to the XForms WG Chairs!
Pictures taken in Carmel, NY July 15, 2002 and July 16, 2002.
There are from May 2004 on the way home from the WWW Conference in Manhattan. See Bubbles flying.
