Can you guess who this faculty member is?
If you guessed Jessica Sayles you are correct!
Jessica is not all study and research! She volunteers as a "guide dog puppy raiser" for Guide Dogs For The Blind, located in San Rafael, CA. The puppy stays with the raiser for one year who trains him to participate in all sorts of events and places. In the picture the 12 week old puppy, Ellery, is participating in a Christmas parade. Since he was so young he was riding in the wagon. He enjoyed it. There are various clubs throughout the 5 Western States that provide guidance and training. They usually meet once a week either for training or socialization outings. It is fun work and a change from studying charts!
