Joyce is a Guiding Eyes for the Blind dog my husband and I raised from 9 weeks old until she was about 1.5 years old. We went to classes to learn the training methods and work with others who were raising guide dogs. She was originally intended to be a guide dog, but was chosen to be a brood for the program instead!
