Blind Son Gets Guide Dog

Exciting news in our family! Our college son who became blind a year and a half ago is at guide dog school. He received his dog yesterday, a black male which is a cross between a black lab and a golden retriever.

My son sounded soo happy, and we are all happy and excited with him.

That is fabulous! So delighted to hear it!

When I was in college my brothers' raised guide dogs - I think our family placed four or five dogs over the course of many years. What a great way for kids to get involved in an incredible concept. :)

Alicia, Thank you for your enthusiasm. It really is wonderful. And what a great thing for your brothers to do, and a great idea for other families to participate in such a project.

Debbie, Thank you for stopping in, and for joining in our joy.
