This May, help me “walk across Canada” to give more Canadians a new leash on life!

Shay, my hearing dog guide, has been my partner for more than a year now. I’m so used to having her by my side that my personal space has expanded from vertical me to include horizontal dog plus tail—especially when going through doorways! Shay is a gentle and sensitive soul who delights in doing her job of alerting me to specific sounds, like the doorbell or my phone ringing or the fire alarm. More subtly, though, her response to the environment around us can alert me to unexpected things, like a car coming up behind us, or people or animals that I might not otherwise see. With Shay by my side, I feel protected in a way that I never imagined possible. I am incredibly grateful to Tom and Diane for sponsoring Shay and me, to Linda for being puppy Shay’s foster Mom, and to Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides for making it all possible.

 

I hope that you will be able to donate to this walk for dog guides to enable other people with disabilities to receive the tremendous support and benefit of having their own dog guides.
