A guide dog for two

I had to share this story from the UK’s Daily Mail.

Graham Waspe was devastated when his guide dog Edward was left blind after developing cataracts.  Edward has served Graham for six years.

However, Opal, Graham’s new guide dog, is proving to be a set of eyes for both Graham and Edward.

Mr Waspe says, “Opal’s been great for both of us. I don’t know what we’d do without her” while his wife says that Edward still loves to be around children and have his tummy tickled.

Read the whole story of Mr Waspe, Edward and Opal – complete with great photos –  here.
