  My new National Geographic book, Devoted, focuses on 38 stories about the bond between extraordinary dogs and their humans—five of which are a group that trains seeing-eye dogs . This is the sweetest little book about the founding of the seeing eye dog foundation. And, of course, it's the true story of Rin Tin Tin! It's mostly a childrens book, it was published in the nineteen fifties and being the guardian of a German Shepherd Dog the book is very dear to my heart.

  “Buddy delivered to me the divine gift of freedom,” said Morris Frank (), the first American to benefit from a Seeing Eye dog. Before there were guide dogs, people with any type of disability–including a visual disability–were simply marginalized.   Classified as fiction, the book is accurate in every detail, but presents the facts in a series of stories featuring King Bubba, a seasoned guide dog, who tells the puppies in the Seeing Eye nursery about his experiences. Presented in exquisite but simple language, Bubba Reviews: 4.

Review: This book tells the story of the first seeing-eye dog. It gives real accounts of the blind man who took Buddy under his wings and the learning process that happened. Because these events are real, it is an informational book. Media: Colored pencil/5(4). Seeing this once happy-go-lucky dog hiding under the bed for the entire day is heartbreaking, and it's a struggle for her to watch Tom with his successor dog Nelson, a peppy black lab. A lovely tale of how Betty White breathes new life into Dinah, and a testament to how much working dogs truly live (and love) to work. Warmly recommended/5(25).
