Today is international Guide Dog day for the blind

https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/international-guide-dogs-day/

Since 2007 and my first Guide Dog, I have had several in Paris and Lyon. I am very proud of that achievement because a guide dog must have a very steady character, not be hyper or a barker.Just as a hunter, they must be calm, trainable and devoted to their mission. It’s not always the case, since you cannot bat 1000…as the expression goes. In Lyon I am in the second generation which will be within 2 years, hopefully replacing the 2007 one. These 2 are from the 2015 litter and are training as some of you may know, in Lyon.

Thank you E.O.
