|My Old Home|
|Where I go to school|
|I live with Israel as his guide and friend. It is my job to keep him from walking into things or fall into any holes in the road.|
|Besides eating, there is playing and sniffing. I could just spend hours walking around with my nose to the ground. Except that when I am walking with Israel he expects me to keep it moving or "hup up" as he likes to say but every now and then I still get to sneak in a sniff or two.|
|Hi ! ,
My name is Gobi. I have the same name as the Gobi Desert which is a large region in northern China. I was born at Guiding Eyes for the Blind in Yorktown in New York State. They raised me to become a guide dog from the time I was a little puppy!
I was also in prison for a while. This was not because I stole food off a kitchen counter. I was in the "Puppies Behind Bars" program while I was still in training.
I lived with some humans that were prisoners. They were very nice to me and helped me to learn the skills I needed to make me a better guide dog. I like to think that because they took care of me I helped them learned some things too.
When I finished my training the humans at Guiding Eyes invited Israel to come to Yorktown and stay with me. They showed Israel how to use me as a guide dog and how to feed and take care of me. By us working together at Guiding Eyes we learned how to become a team.
Now I live with Israel and we help each other. I help him to go places and he feeds me when I get really hungry. He only feeds me when I am really hungry because dogs feel hungry all the time.
