We love Guide Dogs

For the May meeting we had some super visitors - Adele and Orla who brought Claire with them. Adele is a German Shepherd puppy in training to go to 'Big Guide Dog School' and Orla is a retired dog.
Claire

Claire Mahoney is a puppy dog walker for Guide Dogs and Adele is her 17th puppy!
Claire told us about the training Orla and the other puppies have to do with her. She also brought some glasses that replicate some of the visual impairments people may have who have a Guide Dog.

Orla and Adele
Orla, Adele and Claire were beautifully behaved and went home with dozens of teddies that the lovely ladies of WoWWI brought with them for Guide Dogs to use in their tombolas.
Just some of our teddies!
 We finished with a very lively debate from Susan and Helen about this year's national resolution - Failing to Care, after which the members voted. If you want to read more about the resolution , it's all on p24 Of WI Life Magazine, April edition.
