I am pleased to introduce the newest resident to our mountain community. Button is a 2 year old yellow, female Labrador and Sue Terada’s new Guide Dog. Her first Guide, Pinta, passed away one year to the day of Button/Sue’s graduation! Sue and Button have just successfully completed two weeks of training with staff from B.C. Guide Dogs.
“It is just wonderful to be out walking on my own again and having this new friend always beside me. She is full of youthful energy and love. Just what I needed to keep me going. I am truly grateful for the generous contributions made to the school in order that she may be gifted to me”, says Sue.
Sue asks for your help by not feeding treats or calling Button’s name from your vehicle as you pass. This encourages dangerous behaviour. However, Sue loves to know who is passing and welcomes a chat anytime with neighbours.
