Since we had moved from Alaska to Virginia, we switched guide dog schools. Allen was our first guide puppy from Southeastern Guide Dogs.
|Little Allen his first day - Lena took him to a school presentation, where he promptly fell asleep.|
|Allen attended classes with Lena at Danville Community College, VA. Since she had just moved from Alaska, having Allen made it easier for Lena to make friends.|
