  1. Steph, I am confused. Why is Francis called a hearing dog rather than a seeing dog? I understand Francis’ owner is blind, right?

    1. Hi Oneta, it’s so great hearing from you. The classification Frances falls under is listed on the website hosting the competition. I can see why you’d be confused as I was at first. Thanks for asking and yes, Holly is blind and Frances is a guide dog. I’ll update the post with a note of clarification. Thank you for asking.💗
