Personal Message:

Did you know that Southeastern Guide Dogs breeds, raises, and trains some of the finest guide and service dogs in the world? The puppies are adorable, but to witness these amazing dogs in training is nothing short of miraculous. Thanks to their intelligence and fine training, people who cannot see—and veterans who have seen too much—are able to walk out their front door with confidence and independence.

When Jane and I learned that Southeastern Guide Dogs relies 100% on private donations, receives no government funding, and doesn't charge their recipients for their dogs or services, that's when we decided to participate in their biggest fundraiser of the year: the Walkathon.

Please join us in supporting the Southeastern Guide Dogs mission to raise and train these puppies and create extraordinary dogs.


 Your help means a lot to me – and to the people whose lives are changed forever because of these incredible dogs.  Jane and I thank you for your support. Your donations make it possible for these puppies to stay healthy and grow into working dogs of the highest caliber.

PS- Cosmo, the Future Superhero we raised, and Parker, the pup we are raining now, thank you too! -- Help break a World Record! At the 2019 Walkathon, Southeastern Guide Dogs will attempt to break an existing World Record for the largest gathering of dogs wearing bandanas at a single event. We need you! All you have to do is show up with your dog(s), and they will supply the bandanas. Bring your friends and their dogs and help us break a world record!
