Seeing Eye Dogs

Morris S. Frank was given the first seeing eye dog on this day in 1928.   You can read all about it in, Morris and Buddy : The Story of the First Seeing Eye Dog by Becky Hall.  She tells the story of how Morris Frank was blinded during a boxing accident and how he trained his dog, Buddy to be his guide.  Mr. Morris went on to create the Seeing Eye  which helps blind individuals to live independently.
