Raising Robbie: Off to College!

By Craig Garretson, Senior Communications Officer

Robbie, a male yellow Labrador retriever, in front of the gated entrance to The Seeing Eye.

Today, one day after Robbie's 16-month birthday, he returned to The Seeing Eye to begin his training as a Seeing Eye dog.

We've lived with Robbie for more than a year now, so of course it is with heavy hearts that we say good-bye. But we know being a Seeing Eye dog is his purpose in life. Just like a child, at some point they have to grow up and go off to college or get a job.

Robbie is such a loving, energetic, and eager dog, we know he's going to make an incredible difference in someone's life. Good luck Robbie, we love you!
