From a pioneering guide dog organization comes the first book to explore one of the most profound and inspiring relationships between humans and animals.

In Trust the Dog, the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation introduces listeners to a group of extraordinary people who, thanks to their guide dogs, flourish in a world that assumes the ability to see. Among them are a brother and sister who lost their sight at a very young age and whose dogs essentially helped them grow up, a Serbian girl who fled civil war to find new hope in America, and a newly blind single father determined to keep his family together against all odds. Through their experiences we discover the astonishing teamwork and devotion between people who are blind and their guide dogs, the intelligence and discipline that these animals unfailingly display, and the noble work of the nonprofit organization that for fifty years has been making it all possible. A heartwarming tribute to this unique relationship, Trust the Dog is sure to change how we think about man’s best friend and the possibilities of life without sight.

    " Hirshey writes very eloquently about the featured people and their dogs. A fluffy, heartwarming book, although it strays a little into the gushing, PR style (which is to be expected, since the book is produced by Fidelco). "
