Another News Report About The CNIB Guide Dog Program

Last Sunday, I wrote about The CNIB’s new guide dog program, with considerable scepticism. Yesterday, I was sent a link to another news report about it, and it didn’t really allay my fears much.

I’m comforted to know that they seem to have put some thought into the breeding of the dogs, but the CNIB representative clearly says that they want to take care of the food and vet bills for the guide dog’s life from puppyhood to retirement. Not even GDB, who has generous donations, does that. I’m worried about whether, in that case, they can dictate what food the dogs have to eat, and what care they do or don’t receive…and I’m worried about where they think that kind of money will come from.

Maybe they could do some good in the advocacy department, and even that’s a maybe if they decide to spread the wrong message, but I wish they would just stick to that, rather than opening a school.
