Dear friends and colleagues,

This past year I had the honor of joining the Board of Directors of Southeastern Guide Dogs.   The school breeds, raises, and trains some of the finest guide and service dogs in the world.   Their service dogs give people with vision loss the independence they need to live life to its fullest.   Their service dogs also give veterans with disabilities the help they need to emerge from seclusion and overcome anxiety, and serve veterans with challenges such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), balance issues, seizures, and hearing loss. They also serve as emotional support dogs, facility therapy dogs, and Gold Star Family dogs.

The dogs are smart, fit, and highly trained, like elite athletes prepared for the challenge. Through cutting-edge genetics and breeding, innovative puppy education, positive home experiences, and expert training, the school is creating healthier, stronger, more intelligent dogs that love people, love to learn, and live to please.

The puppies are adorable, and witnessing these amazing dogs in training is nothing short of miraculous. The school relies 100% on private donations, receives no government funding, and doesn't charge their recipients for their dogs or services.   That's when I decided to participate and to help change the world, one extraordinary dog at a time.    Please join me in supporting the Southeastern Guide Dogs.
