Dobie has lost a true legend in Coach Ranft, who dedicated 27 years of his life to Dobie and students.

Dobie Community and Alumni,

It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we inform you of the passing of Dobie’s long-term substitute, Howard Ranft, who passed away unexpectedly over Memorial Day Weekend. Coach Ranft has been a substitute here at Dobie since 1997, which is 27 years. He was a part of our family, he bled burnt orange, and he loved the kids. Dobie was his extended family. 🤘🏼🧡

Dobie guide dogs are the best. New pup Rome, will be raised by Vianey.

🐾🧡WE LOVE OUR GUIDE DOGS 🧡🐾

🐕‍🦺Our 16 month old black lab siblings Sunday (raised by Vianey Alanis) and Steiner (raised by Ms. Morris) went back to the California campus via airplane two weeks ago. Those dogs are starting their formal training where they will embark on a 3-4 month long extensive, fast paced, advanced training prior to being paired with a blind person. Once the final testing is complete, the raisers will have the opportunity to return to campus to be reunited with their dog and meet the new handler.

🧡Azalea (who was started by Nayely Huynh) was transferred off campus to another raiser so Nayely could work with her livestock animals.

🐾We welcomed a new 9 week old lab female puppy today! “Rome” who will be raised by Vianey Alanis. Rome won’t be attending classes prior to school being out so she can work on her puppy kindergarten skills.
