Lauren and I doing an educational talk for the employees of First American at our annual puppy club fundraiser. We are from the Huntington Beach club. Lauren got sooo much love this day! She behaved very well while getting petted and impressed everyone with her skills. 🐶💕🐾 Photo Descriptions: #1 I am standing in front of a group of some very interested looking First American employees with my female black lab Lauren. Many of them are looking lovingly at Lauren while I am talking. She is in her puppy jacket behaving very well and in position. We are inside the office building, some cubicles are in the background. #2 Puppy club member and puppy sitter Jana standing with her arms out wide with a big smile showing off our club puppies, who are relaxing in their ex-pens by our booth tables. #3 Our lovely First American tour guide posing for a picture with Lauren. #4 Lauren sitting and looking up to her right with a big smile on her face. Her tag silencer appropriately reads “wiggle butt” #guidedogsfortheblind#puppyraiser#firstamericantitlecompany#annualfundraiser#huntingtonbeachpuppy
We’re spending a few days up north with friends after a difficult week. Reflection, relaxation and good vibes only. ✌🏼#selflove #justbreathandletgo - Photo description: Xia sits on a moss covered rock in the woods. She is looking towards the sun, wearing a sparkly autumn leaf collar.
Archie Update... Great to hear he is doing well and enjoying days out with his walkers getting used to the train station amongst other things hopefully to help someone less fortunate one day do something we take for granted. Well done Pup 🌟
As National Veterinary Technician Week continues, we wanted to take this opportunity to give our veterinary technicians another shout out for the commitment and compassion they bring to their work every single day. We are so fortunate here at Guide Dogs for the Blind to have exceptional veterinary technicians who support our veterinary clinics on both campuses. They are truly the backbone of what we do and allow us to provide the best care possible for our dogs. We appreciate our veterinary technicians every day and love that they have this opportunity to be recognized nationally. To our technician team – thanks for all that you do!

I’m still broken hearted over the loss of Nugget so receiving this update today has left me with mixed feelings. On one paw it reminds me how much I miss my wing dog but on the other paw I’m thrilled to see Berry make it through training. I’m proud to sponsor Guide Dogs and I can’t wait to meet the next one I’m allocated. Felix and now Berry qualified which leaves me two for two 😎🐶 #guidedogs#guidedogsfortheblind#guidedog#dogsofinstagram#sponsor#proud#makeadifference
Earlier today we travelled down to Limbiate with Frida to finally meet Giuseppe, the man who is receiving our first (and definitely not the last) sponsored guide dog, Poe! Giuseppe shared his story with the team, bringing into reality the invaluable difference which Poe makes to his life. It was a proud and undoubtedly emotional day for the whole IC Bellagio team, seeing the difference we are able to make in someone else’s life by living out our Core Values daily. Thank you to our friends, partners, family and travelers who have supported us along the way and have indeed played a huge part in enabling Giuseppe and Poe to meet 🐶💛💙⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #icbellagio#italyexperts#corevalues#guidedogsfortheblind#serviziocaniguida#opportunity#sponsorship#italianlifestyle#instatravel#doingtherightthing
