I support guide dogs for the blind and many other charities – I have done The Nightingale Walk 4 times – 40 miles along the Thames tow-path – it nearly kills you! – my pic is in the pub and so are the dogs we have bought – you can google it and my local pub in London, which, funnily enough is called The Nightingale!22 October, 2010 at 5:50 pm #450519
UNICEF… well if its good enough for Robbie Williams!!! (he is an ambassador for them)Seriously they are the only charity to guarantee 80% of all donations are used with the people who need it, not on admin publicity etc

its dogs that are trained to be deaf peoples ears, alert them to alarms, traffic, door bells, any sound really, for both the safety and convenience and life enhancment of deaf people25 October, 2010 at 10:19 pm #450526
I think they’re known as helping dogs rather than guide dogs, and helping dogs are trained for all sorts of disabilities.
