This message is for those who wish to attend the Top Dog workshop in January.

Please circulate the following widely. 

You can still make plans to attend Top Dog 2013! The deadline for registering 
and making hotel reservations has been extended to December 20, 2012.
If you have already registered and will be traveling to Savannah by plane, bus 
or train, contact us at the above email address with your itinerary and number 
of travelers. We hope to provide transportation to and from the airport and bus 
and train stations.
Where else will you find three days of workshops, exhibits, fine Southern food, 
Southern hospitality, and the chance to visit with old friends and to make new 
ones? Where will guide dog handlers, puppy raisers and friends of the guide dog 
movement be going in January?
They'll be heading for the Southeast Regional Top dog workshop, January 11-13, 
2013 in the Hostess City, Savannah, Georgia.

Be sure to register and make your hotel reservations before December 20. Unlike 
at some events, we won't be able to offer registration at the door.
You won't want to miss a program with highlights like these.
  a.. A Top Dog tradition, the Blessing of the Guide Dogs 
  b.. A panel discussion on current advocacy issues for guide dog handlers 
  c.. A veterinarian speaking on the basics, ears, teeth and flea prevention 
  d.. An interactive session on peak experiences with our dogs 
  e.. An optional  Red Cross certification course in canine first aid 
  f.. A banquet speaker who will inspire us with her story

by phone and through the mail. The registration phone number for registrar 
Sally Benjamin is (850) 588-9070. The registration cost for Top Dog 2013 is 
$25.00 per person. Don't delay; the registration deadline is December 20.
