My guide dog – and so much more

Donna and Nellby graduate Donna Shapiro

After my first walk with Nell, I realized that I haven’t been able to “see” that well since childhood.  It felt so natural, easy and relaxing.  

Together, we will take the train to yoga class and practice our downward facing dog.  I will enjoy daily tasks like going to the farmers market or walking on the avenue. I will spend an afternoon at one of my favorite museums or do lunch with a girlfriend – all with Nell to help me along the way.

Yes, she is an amazing guide dog, but she is so much more to me; she gives me pride, self confidence and dignity.

Thank you to everyone that supported me in my journey; you have literally changed my life.
