Here is a picture of harpo my guide I been teaching him more sign too.
Wow so got to see how they work nice he also is like my best friend..Awww black lab. He's adorable! One of my deaf-blind friends back in college had guide dogs. Her first was a yellow lab- after she retired, the next one was a black lab. I think the third one was also a black lab but never met the last one. Knew of one other deaf-blind woman at Gallaudet who had a black lab also.
Does he also pick up small items that you might drop ?
I got my wife a Black Lab puppy and gave it to her at our baby shower, Labs are very smart and gentle with kids, also get along with other animals.
I know service animals aren't allowed to be with other animals and not for family pets, But the Labs are a great breed and well rounded for the work cut out for them. You will love the gentle giant ! Beautiful dog you have.
