Perhaps this title is obvious and why I like this picture (this girl is in a trance almost!)
I was appalled to read the letter in the LA Times from Peta regarding their concern for the care of a guide dog. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/unleashed/2009/01/when-we-first-r.html There is some real inaccurate information regarding the care of a guide dog. Truth: These dogs are so loved and happy doing their work and they do get much time to play and relax. If they are not happy in this career, they are able to change careers or retire. I know I am speaking to the choir but it is frustrating ... there are many important causes to get behind and certainly I do not like any abuse or poor treatment of an animal. Guide Dogs for the Blind is a fabulous organization and has love and respect for each of these dogs. I believe Cricket loves her time of service and is happy. Thanks - I feel better!
Thanks to Steve and others who have written responses to educate.
