Flying High in Seattle
Recently, GDB breeder keeper and puppy raiser Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger (of the Hudson River landing fame), was in Seattle to speak at the Museum of Flight. Members of the local puppy raising club. Guide Puppies of Seattle, were among the 1,300 people that came out to the museum to take in Sully's presentation. Club leader Ruth Oldham reported that before the event started, Sully made a point to stop and pet the puppies and chat with the raisers; this group photo was taken at his request. "Several of us thanked him for all that he does for Guide Dogs and of course what he did to boost the spirit of Americans that fateful day," said Ruth. "He was a great speaker on what it means to truly be a team leader."
