Twice a year the Lions Club solicit funds for their charities, Leader Dog for the Blind, Bear Lake Camp for the Visually handicapped, Michigan Eye Band, and the Penrickton school for the blind. The last two weekends we were standing in front of the Kroger store with Mindy. The wind was icy cold. Mindy is getting better at not jumping at everyone who walks by unless they talk to her in a high pitched voice and tell her how cute she is. Almost everyone who has a dog comes up to show us pictures of their dog and tell us all about him or her.
