News-guide dogs!!

Hey guys,
It was such a short notice for my trainer, so I didn't even get it on my blog. But tonight at 6pm they showed a clip about guide dogs on the news, and I was in it!! It was taped back in November at one of our guide dog meetings, but just now aired, late January.
Sorry you guys missed it on TV, but check out this link and look for me & my trainer!!

I don't know how long they are going to show this, but my trainer is going to try and take a video from our TV on her camera, if it works she will then post that and you guys should be able to watch that anytime!!
Enjoy!!

Hi,

Thanks for this clip! It loaded without a problem.

It takes a special person to raise a dog for this cause, considering the heartache and sacrifice Allie goes through. How special to be able to do so much for someone else. We appreciate you sharing with us.
