My name is Anne. I was born blind, got my sight back, lost it again. I set up Pathfinder Dogs to help others and to help make a better life for assistance dogs. I feel truly blessed to be able to have all three perspectives on eyesight. I have included a photo of my wee girlie, Kayra with her banana (couldn’t give her a real one or she would have eaten it). Kayra is my current working dog, bless her furry paws.
