Blindness has no adverse impact on a person’s ability to exercise due care and good judgment. Continue reading
Two years ago I participated in a documentary about the service dogs and first responder dogs involved with the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Animal Planet [Michael Hingson] in Canada picked up the show, but it was not until this year that Animal Planet in the U.S. did the same. The show will air this Tuesday, September 10, 2013 at 8PM.
