Liam is the true definition of a Velcro pug. He feels most comfortable when he is no more than 2 feet away from me, and he's been known to knock down other pets (and people!) if they get between his body and mine. Wherever I go, he goes too. I like to think that we have a bond that's both strong and just a little extraordinary.
But this month is set aside to remember dogs that do more than provide their people with companionship and unconditional love. These dogs also help their humans to compensate for losses that most of us just don't understand.
They're guide dogs. The value of their work is hard to overstate.
So, when premium-quality pet food manufacturer Natural Balance asked me to help to spread the word about Guide Dogs for the Blind, I was happy to help.
Guide Dogs for the Blind is a non-profit charitable organization that raises and trains exceptional guide dogs to serve the blind and visually impaired. They're sharing stories of people who have benefited from working with a guide dog. Today, I'd like to share one story with you.
