Year of the Dog Day 63

I went for a drive to Horwich today to take my son to the hairdressers and as we were parking up I spotted a lady training a guide dog so I went over to say hello. I wasn’t sure if they’d be able to stop but fortunately they could so I got to say hello to beautiful Thelma. Thelma is still a trainee guide dog, she’s in the last part of her training though and only has 2 months to go, what a clever girl! Thelma is sooo gentle and obviously very well behaved, she was one of the easiest dogs so far to get a photo of!

Since I’ve started my blog I’ve wanted to see a guide dog, they’re so amazing! The work they do is so fantastic, dogs really are incredible! To find out more about guide dogs follow the link below.

  1. Guide dogs (and Service dogs in general) are amazing. We have a Dog Guides of Canada building just around the corner which has an open day once a year complete with demos! Incredible what those “guys” can do.
