Hi everyone, here are two more books submitted to bookshare on the topic of dogs. One is a replacement for a "good" quality copy. A Day in the Life of A Seeing Eye Dog Trainer by Keven Osborn Book depicting the typical day of work at The Seeing Eye Everyday Heroes: Extraordinary Dogs Among Us This is the replacement. See book jacket info below. both are marked excellent and comments are with the books. From the Book Jacket: In this heartwarming and inspiring book you will find the true stories of dogs who were raised and nurtured by volunteers from Guiding Eyes for the Blind. We call the dogs "heroes" because of their work as extraordinary guide dogs as well as crime fighters, lifesavers, search and rescue dogs and much more. Some of the heroes you will meet are Aris, an exceptionally sensitive dog whose nurturing created a bridge that led a disabled child to a new world of confidence and love; Hutch, a dog who saved his owner's life due to his intuition and quick response; and Woodsy, an invaluable narcotics detection dog. You will be amazed at the boundless effort these dogs continue to make to improve the lives of those they serve. Every year, 165 teams graduate from Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a nonprofit organization founded in 1954. The teams are made up of visually impaired individuals with highly trained guide dogs. The instructors, supervisors and staff promote "ability, not disability." Families volunteer a year of their life to raising a puppy with the intention of giving it to a blind person. They establish the loving bond that is the foundation of the puppy's future role. After a year with their raisers, the dogs returned to Guiding Eyes for formal training with professional instructors. They are continually evaluated for their strengths-most become guide dogs; those who don't are "released" and serve in detection, patrol or personal service for a person with special needs. Everyday Heroes is a living tribute to the extraordinary dedication and courage of dogs and people-showing us how one person's life can be dramatically changed by the love and help of a dog. This book is dedicated to Guiding Eyes for the Blind, Yorktown Heights and Patterson, New York. Writing it has been a fantastic voyage for me, allowing me to meet some of the most courageous people in the world. I am thankful that I have had this opportunity to donate all of my time and income from this adventure to Guiding Eyes, to help them with their significant work. -Sherry Bennett Warshauer Shelley L.
