Happy Friday!

What better way to usher in a Friday than to share with you the beautifully stylish guide dog, Megan. Here she is styling her lovely pink raincoat.

Megan dahlin, you look mahvalous!

“Being a Guide Dog was both my destiny and my choice. It’s a little like coming from a family of doctors and finding that medicine is both my passion and my family’s legacy. Being a Guide Dog and working with my handler means a lifetime of adventure and love! Together, we travel the world, work hard, play harder, and we live life to the fullest with our family, friends, and community.” ~Megan, black labrador Guide Dog | Guide Dogs for the Blind | Handler, Nicole Schultz-Kass

Image Description: Text is above the 3-Panel photo collage. The middle photo is a black and white of Megan in harness with a black background–her coat is shiny so her features are very distinguished and she looks statuesque. The next two photos are Megan in harness with her pink raincoat on and my purple raincoat and black Converse shoes visible against a white background.

The Guide Dog Memos: Roja

Introducing Roja

Image description is in the blog post.Roja, a beautiful golden lab who works with her handler, Joy, can be pretty opinionated as evidenced by her quote. To read more about Roja’s adventures with Joy check out her Dog Blog on DoubleVisionBlog.

“Joy did most of the talking…boy can she yap…blah blah blah blah blah…but I got to show off my guide dog work when the kids made an aisle for me to guide Joy down, complete with a chair obstacle and all!  I’m not trying to brag, but I was pretty much the bomb-diggity guide dog of the year, and those kids loved me!” Roja Thomas www.doublevisionblog.com

Even though Roja has a charming sense of humor when it’s time to get down to business she is totally serious when she is working with Joy.

Quoted text is teal on a white background under three photos: The picture in the center is Roja in her harness during training kneeling with her front paws. The other 2 pictures are of Joy seated in a chair with Roja laying at her feet in a classroom of children sitting on the floor in semi circles.
