About me

Location British Columbia, Canada
Introduction Living life one day at a time. learning something new everyday. We are a guide dog team who graduated May 2007 from GDB. Maylee helps me see things that my vision can not see and I give her commands. love and attention. Oh and Maylee told me not to forget I give her food and toys. This is a glimpse into what life is like for a new guide dog team. Also I knit and crochet, mostly knit at this point. I have quite a few allergies, some of them being cats, dogs and other animals. So I knit with non-animal fibers and explore all the options out there and post them on my knitting blog. I live with my partner -- His Tallest, my daughter -- Mini-me and my guide dog -- Maylee. Oh and our fish whose names I always forget.
