The human-canine relationship is special. As dog lovers, we all understand the happiness our canine companions bring to our lives. They love us unconditionally and ask for so little in return. Many of us class bringing a dog into our home as one of the best decisions we ever made, and cannot imagine life without them. However, for a blind and partially sighted person, a dog means all this and much more besides. A guide dog brings freedom, confidence, independence and the opportunity to live life again, as well as a Forever Friend giving unconditional love.
