Along the way, you’ll also see some bank notes specific to the gold rush, tokens good for a variety of human vices and of course, a real nugget of the stuff dreams are made of.

Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind was established as a registered charity in 1984.
Pups are placed into homes at approximately eight weeks of age, so you will be housebound for a short time.
Once the puppy’s vaccinations are in place, around four months of age, you will be asked to take the puppy anywhere you go and introduce it to as many environments and situations as possible, that it may later encounter as a guide dog.
