On Tuesday 27th February, Aunty Ane and Uncle Jan from SA Guide Dog Association came to visit our school.
Ane brought with her 2 special visitors: Daisy and Cola – the most beautiful guide dogs.
Aunty Ane told the children what a guide dog does and how important they are to their owners.
Uncle Jan showed the children some of the instructions the dogs must learn.
These dogs only need to be told ONCE to sit down, or stand up or wait. AMAZING
Guide dogs are very clever. They are the eyes of their owners.
DID YOU KNOW?
It costs R100 000.00 to provide 1 trained dog for a blind person from raising the puppy, training the puppy,
training the owner of the dog how to manage in their own homes and every other skill required for the dog and owner.
Daisy is 2 years old but in dog years, she is already 14!
GOD spelt backwards is DOG
We were very proud to give R1420.30 to the SA Guide Dog Association who were extremely grateful.
Thank you everyone who contributed – every donation adds up
