Bringing Hope and Joy with Four Paws and a Wagging Tail

Through all my years, I've always thought....if one of my senses were taken away, which one would be the most heartbreaking.  Scent...well, there are a lot of things I love, the smell of a crisp fall day, or the flowers blooming in the Spring.  Maybe the wonderful smell of Mom and Dad's homecooking.  But, I would be okay, as there are many things I wouldn't miss, and I won't go there.  Hearing would be tough, as I love the sound of the birds, and hearing laughter amongst family and friends.  But despite going through hearing, touch, scent...I thought to never see a sunrise again, to never be able to move around my home, to not be able to cross a street.  The things we take for granted every would I do it. I could do a lot of things without smelling it or hearing it, or touching it. But, sight??  

Hence, Leader Dogs...they are amazing.  And the more information I've received from them, the more I am amazed at their history and how they have evolved.  And like our local animal shelter that is strictly run on donations, they do the same thing.

So, when you read this, imagine....getting up and not having a helper to get you around.  But, imagine even better, a warm faithful companion that protects you with every step you take.  And take a moment to think about all the people that dedicate themselves tirelessly to make this happen.

Leader Dogs for the Blind is in the middle of the largest campaign in their history to turn the existing kennel into a state of the art Canine Development Center.  Join me as I raise funds for this amazing organization and help them continue their mission of empowering people who are blind or visually impaired with lifelong skills for safe and independent daily travel.
