This was the second year for us, and the event has definitely grown!
"The Walk" was about 3.8 km and took the walkers over to Kingston, our very own town. The walk ended at the Kingston Lions Club.
The annual Purina Walk for Dog Guides helps raise funds and awareness of the SIX (!!) current Dog Guide programs run by the Lions Fndtn Of Canada. We were happy to walk and raise donations for these amazing programs.
The 6 Dog Guide programs are:
1. Autism Assistance Dog Guides (Our son Noah has Autism. Argo is his AADG.)
2. Canine Vision Dog Guides
3. Hearing Ear Dog Guides
4. Seizure Response Dog Guides
5. Special Skills Dog Guides
6. Diabetic Alert Dog Guides (the newest program).
Here are a few photos I took to commemorate this day:

Our son Noah's AADG "Argo" will be 4 yrs old on May 29th, and he came to us on Dec 17th, 2010. We are thankful every day for the help that Argo and the Lions Fndtn of Canada have given our son Noah. It goes beyond what words could ever express!
