Guide Dog Visit

Hello, my name is Annie and I am a volunteer doggy helper for Guide Dogs for the Blind.  I came to visit the residents at The Blue House one afternoon with my human, Helen, and she told everyone about my story.  

I was born 2 years ago and although I didn’t know it then, I was a very special puppy! My parents had been specially selected for their good temperament and intelligence, so my six brothers and sisters and I were going to be trained to be Guide Dogs for the Blind.  I stayed with my human until I was 14 months old, then I went to dog school.  

Unfortunately I didn’t pass all my tests because I’m a bit too relaxed, so I went back to my human to live there, and now I go out with my smart blue coat on, and help to raise money and tell people what a great charity Guide Dogs is.
