The Seeing Eye
ABC news recently honored some special people and pups in their feature "Person of the Week." They marked the 80th anniversary of the Seeing Eye, the oldest guide dog school around. Over the years, they have placed 14,000 dogs with people needing their help. Only half of the dogs that enter the program get the opportunity to serve because it is such hard work and there are so many commands to learn. These pups need to develop "learned disobedience," which is what they have to do when their person wants to cross the street but a car is coming. That sounds tough!
