Working Dogs who help disabled people -

These dogs called A.W.A.R.E Dogs and were out raising awareness and collecting money for the Aware Dogs of Australia.

These are dogs that assist people with a handicap. We all know about seeing eye dogs for the blind but these dogs are not so well known. They assist in so many ways; they can pick up items that are dropped and bring the telephone when it rings. The different ways they help depends on the special needs of the person they are trained to assist. You can learn more about them at the A.W.A.R.E. web site.

The dogs are fabulous the way they help people.
Yes we have so much snow! And the dogs love beeing in the snow. Millie loves running in the snow.
