Last year Chrissy and her Guide Dog ‘Lacey’ raised over $6,700 for Guide Dogs by participating in PAWGUST.
Chrissy and ‘Lacey’ will be hitting the pavement again this year and walking 30 minutes for 30 days in August to give more people the chance to access life-changing services. Would you like to join Chrissy and ‘Lacey’ in PAWGUST this year?
Meeting Guide Dog Lacey
As Chrissy grappled with what was happening with her sight, she contacted Guide Dogs for training to use a long cane.
“I had a love-hate relationship with my cane. I didn’t think I would qualify to receive a Guide Dog as I was not completely blind so I put off undertaking the assessment for two years.”
A Guide Dog proved to be exactly what Chrissy needed and ‘Lacey’, a beautiful yellow Labrador, walked into her life.
“Transitioning from the cane to a Guide Dog was great and getting around with ‘Lacey’ by my side is so much easier. I think ‘Lacey’ can sense when I’m feeling anxious and she will stop so that I can bend down and give her a big hug. She is just so calming.”
