Natural Balance Celebrates National Guide Dog Month

September is National #GuideDogMonth and I'm partnering with Natural Balance and Guide Dogs for the Blind to recognize nine amazing human-canine teams! You can read all nine inspiring stories here.

I enjoyed all nine stories, but the team that touched me the most were Maile and Jasmine. Maile lost her sight suddenly and unexpectedly at 23. At an age when most young people are exploring their freedom and charting their future, she felt her life shrinking. Fortunately, she soon met a woman with a guide dog who became her mentor and inspiration for living a full and extraordinary life.
