"Guide Dog Day" Proclaimed in Durango

The Durango City Council in Colorado proclaimed March 3, 2014 as Guide Dog Day! They also honored the GDB puppy club Southwest Bright Eyes with a proclamation at the City Council Meeting. The Council noted all that guide dogs do for their partners, as well as acknowledging that this small club has been raising puppies for over twenty years! They also took note of the fact that Chiffon, who was raised in Durango, is partnered with Tracy Boyd in Portland, OR. Tracy and her Alumni Chapter members from the group “Mommies with Guides” were recently featured in Real Simple magazine – http://www.realsimple.com/work-life/life-strategies/seeing-impaired-mothers-group-00100000119851/index.html.

Other members of the club who puppy sit were also there (Patricia and Patrick McIvor and Bobbi and Dave Rakita). A special thank you to Southwest Bright Eyes puppy club and to all of our amazing puppy raisers for all you do!
