Hi All, In 1985 I joined the Appeals Committee in Manchester to help raise money for the Guide dogs. We went to all kinds of events, pubs, schools to give talks. One of the best places was outside Marks and Spencer's. Put us outside there with six dogs and we were shore of about five thousand pounds per day. I would position myself at the main entrance and shake my tin and the money came rolling in. But the storey is about Edwin, my first guide dog. He was a lab/retriever cross and weighed 75 pounds. When he stood or sat down his head was about the right level with kiddies in push chairs. He could lick an ice cream top without anyone noticing till it was to late. He would sit there looking all inercent. What gave him away was the ice cream left round his lips. He also had a bad habit of collecting teddy bears out of push chairs as they went passed. I would find this out when some one would ask me why I had two or three teddy bears round my feet. Also he had a bad habit of going into a shop and while I was getting served he would get mars bars or kit kats of the low trays in front of the counter. The naughty dog always got two of each. One for him and one for me. These dogs are so cleaver they can do things without you knowing. Malcolm from Hyde. Cheshire. England. Skype name. malcolmbo1
