Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – October 10, 2016

Dear Everyone,

There is always something going on over here.

Usually I’m in the business of promoting special needs cats.

But, this week something kind of special happened.

We got a house guest I didn’t see coming (pun intended, which you will get later.)

Meet Madeline.

Bow-Tie has a house guest

Yes, Madeline is a dog.

Yes, Madeline is giving me a kiss.

Madeline isn’t just any dog.

She is being trained and will grow up to be a guide dog for the blind.

It’s our job to teach her here for 14 months.

When she leaves us she will have a very important life ahead of her.

 

Madeline and Annie SullivanIn the meantime, she is here and quickly found her favorite feline.

Was it me? No. It’s Annie Sullivan.

Annie Sullivan loved her immediately, and they played continually.

 

 

 

 

 

Paw-cleaning in progressAnnie has already taught Madeline how to clean her paws.

Madeline caught onto that one quickly.

I ask you, how sweet is it that a blind cat is training a seeing eye dog?

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie instructs the childrenSince Annie was set on being the trainer…

…I lined them up and told them I would be watching their every move.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Madeline and Annie SullivanNothing gets by me.

No matter where they are, I’m watching from afar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie Sullivan pats Madeline on the noseMadeline is very sweet with Annie.

Annie always thanks her with a soft pat on the nose.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Madeline brought a toy for Annie SullivanThis is a lesson for all of us.

Annie has physical limitations, but there are no limitations on love.

Annie is able to express herself, share, and love without eyes.

 

 

 

 

 

Madeline watches over Annie SullivanSee, love comes in all shapes and sizes.

And four-legged fur creatures express it the best.

Until next week.

Love,

Bow-Tie

  1. Maddy is getting some good experience for her future role! I suspect she and Annie Sullivan will be able to help each other over the next several months.
