Every year Guide Dogs of America has a booth at the Mission Viejo Dog Walk (also known as the DAWG Walk), Pet Faire, and Dog Adoption Event. Every year I’m busy with one thing or another and can’t attend this event. I hope to change that trend this year!
Thinking back in time…last year I didn’t have a Guide Dog Puppy. Two years ago, Derby was too young to work at the booth. This year I’m going to do my best to help out at the Dawg Walk. Here’s the information on this years Dawg walk, Pet Faire, and Dog Adoption Event:

Reggie, The Golden Retriever
I’m puppy sitting a young Golden Retriever Guide Dog Puppy In Training named Reggie during the Dog Walk. I’d like to take Reggie over to help out at the Guide Dog booth at this years Mission Viejo DAWG WALK. Unfortunately, there is an outside chance that she is too young to work the booth. We like to make sure we only take our puppies to age appropriate events. An event like the DAWG WALK may be too stressful for some younger puppies and we want to set all of our puppies up for success whether she’s a guide dog puppy in training or a family pet.
Are you planning on going to this years Mission Viejo Dog Walk? If so, please stop by and visit the Guide Dogs of America booth.
