GIVING SPOTLIGHT – GUIDE DOGS FOR THE BLIND
TRICORD’s Marilyn Stegemann and her daughter, Emma, donate their time and talents to Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) as puppy-raisers and puppy-sitters! For two years, they puppy-raised a wonderful lab named, Rondo. As puppy-raisers, Marilyn and Emma taught Rondo good manners and provided socialization experiences – essentially, he went everywhere with them. Other responsibilities included proper grooming and exposure to other animals, public transportation, traffic, crowds, loud noises, construction sites, and sporting events, to name a few. When not in his vest (work attire), Rondo enjoyed playing tug-o-war, running alongside other pet dogs, and napping.
We love Rondo and are happy to support Marilyn and her family in this mission! To learn more about Guide Dogs for the Blind, check out their website – https://www.guidedogs.com/
