Our Story Wall, Part 2: Dream On, Little Puppies, Dream On!

Puppies grow, don't you know. And while they sleep, their mom dreams of their future.

The new wall mural at our California campus (introduced in http://guidedogs.blogspot.com/2008/12/our-story-wall-part-1.html) is finished and our tour visitors are wowed (some are even bow-wowed…)

We unveiled the mural in a special ceremony held just before our January graduation, in honor of muralist Michelle Imbach and funder Wally Smith. Michelle was able to capture some of the personal features of Wally's late retired guide Panda in the black Labrador in appreciation of Wally's generosity (You'll even find Panda's name on the dog tag!)

Sweet dreams, little ones. Sweet dreams and bright futures!
