He was going to bring home a 3-month-old puppy, house-break it, train it, love it, and more than a year later, hand the leash over to a Guide Dogs for the Blind trainer and eventually, the pup’s new owner.

The contract, covering most of the district’s non-teaching and non-secretarial employees, officially expired Sept. 1.
