Angelina, guide dog for the blind. www.DogDiary.orgOnce my dog Dude went blind, we started making friends with blind kids. It changed our lives. We lived next to Washington State School for the Blind (WSSB) and hung out with the kids all the time. We moved back to the Gorge, but I still volunteer for blind ski nights on Mt. Hood. I love those kids.Guide Dogs for the Blind are amazing. We met Angelina at a WSSB track meet.How does it work? Check out Angelina's video here Copyright (c) Barb Ayers, DogDiary.org

Eloise, snow surfer
Eloise, snow surferOne ear is up, listening for bald eagles...  the other ear is down - for the "girl next door" look. Eloise is a country dog, living in Mosier, OR. She has her ear up for a reason - eagles live all around us. Eloise had a terrifying run-in with the bird of prey - but thankfully lived to tell the tale. Talon scars on her back are a badge of honor. Photo: (c) copyright Barb Ayers, Dog Diary.org
