Earlier this week, I went down to Guide Dogs National Centre, Warwickshire, for a parent’s workshop and had a tour around the National Centre facilities. The tour was a behind-the-scenes look at how every guide dog begins their journey. We also got to see some of their puppies from the viewing platform as they eat, sleep and play.
Some of you may know that we had Mabel since October 2020. She is our daughter’s buddy dog from Guide Dogs. I have not blogged or told many people about Ms C’s eye condition. It took us many years before we had a diagnosis for her in December 2019. It was not promising for her and then we had the Covid lockdown situation so it was a tough year for her. She had to miss most of her year 6 and jump into year 7 in a new school with none of her primary school buddies. Then with more lockdown and isolation, she had to miss a lot of school.
