Guide Dog  Extraordinaire

I'm a Labrador Retriever and work as Avril’s guide dog. When I'm not helping her navigate the city, I hang out in her office and lounge. I love to  play and to eat -- pretty much everything !  I never say no to yummy treats or to a game of tug-of-war! I love everyone I meet and get really excited when we get visitors!  When I'm not working, I'm totally up for sharing some doggy love !
