Vicky – Honey

I always knew some day I would have a guide dog and I feel like I won the lottery with receiving Honey. She is a sweet soul – gentle, patient and smart.  While I am now on my own more than ever in my life, I am not alone.  Both our chins are up and we are carrying on.  Let’s do this!

Alice / Winter

Winter is my 7th guide dog – I have had a guide since I was 16 years of age – and this is the best training I have ever received.  The campus is set up like the “real world” and I am overwhelmed by the quality of the dog and the attention to details.  This truly has been just as exciting as when I got my first guide dog so many years ago.

Carly – Patton

Having guide dog Patton is a first step to a new, better life, with my husband and 6 month old son.  Patton is indescribable and every day is a new experience.  With Patton at my side, I feel like I am back to living life like before I lost my sight.

Don / Wanda

Freedom – that’s the best word to describe life with a guide dog.  Wanda is my third guide dog from Guide Dogs of the Desert.  A guide is such a joy and their work/service is truly a wonder.  I was two years between my last dog and Wanda and it was such an amazing feeling to pick up the harness again and knowing the return of safety and freedom to get around.

Sherrill – Claire

As a fourth generation with Retinitis Pigmentosa, I never wanted to be dependent on someone else.  Claire gives me the independence I crave and I can go anywhere – morning, noon, night – feeling secure and comfortable.  

Skye / Cindi

Visually impaired my whole life, the simple task of walking was never comfortable.  With Cindi, I now know what it is to walk with confidence and ease.  Cindi is like me – young, high energy and she takes great pride in her guide work – we are a perfect match.  And the puppy raisers did such a great job!
