Trail Running with Uri

Here is a short video of me running with my guide dog. We both love getting out for a romp!

A Meme for Uri

Uri is my latest guide dog and he works hard for me. So in his honor, I had to share this one:  

Fidelco article

Hey dog lovers, here's a link to a short article about me and Uri. It's on the web site of Fidelco, the company that provided all four of my guide dogs. Lots of German shepherd photos too! If you happen to like dogs, and wine, and supporting good charities, then you're in luck! You can enjoy all three by purchasing some very tasty Fidelco wines.

Training Uri, the education of a guide dog

People are always curious about my guide dogs. I sometimes think these noble animals get more attention than me at events. Among the most frequent questions that I am asked is, "how do they train a guide dog?" Since I just got Uri a few months ago, we decided to show you!

Meeting Uri

It's always an exciting moment when any of us meets their new dog for the first time. For a blind person, their new guide dog is a special gift who not only gives us love but also freedom. My new dog, Uri, is a two-year-old purebred German shepherd from a Bavarian bloodline. He was provided to me by Fidelco, a fantastic organization in Connecticut that specializes in raising and training guide dogs.
