Back in 2011 I received the sweetest letter from Southeastern Guide Dogs informing me that they had named a puppy after me. Little Emilee is a black Labrador (my favorite, of course). SEGD sent me photos of Emilee as she grew up, and just last week I got a call that she had been placed in her new home. Emilee was chosen for the Canine Connections program, which places dogs with children ages 10-17 to prepare the kids for the responsibility and privilege of one day having their own guide dog. It’s a fantastic program, and I’m so happy that Emilee gets to be a part of it!
Click here to ready all about Emilee’s new role in young Meagan’s life. It is heartwarming to hear that this puppy has grown into the perfect loyal companion for a visually impaired child. These two will forge a bond that Meagan will treasure for the rest of her life. Best wishes to you both!
