it's a blast!

By blast


Tonight we went to see Pick of the Litter, a documentary film which follows a litter of puppies in America from the moment they are born, through puppy walking and training to the point where they are tested for suitability to be a guide dog. It was really interesting and also somewhat sad at times;  a puppy doesn't 'fail' the training but is 'career changed' (or 'withdrawn' in the UK).

The local Guide Dogs for the Blind branch were out in force with guide dogs and their owners and several puppy walkers and puppies. Hero is the German Shepherd and accompanies his owner on the train and underground to London every day where his owner works for the BBC World Service.
