It’s a Lab Thing LABfan, Amy Dixon was walking near the Darien train station with her guide dog, named Elvis, a Yellow Labrador when a loose dog attacked. Amy says she was at a loss of how to protect Elvis. Dixon suffers from Ubiquitous, an inflammatory disease of the retina that has left her with only 1 percent of useable vision.
Guide and Service Labradors (dogs) play a crucial role in the lives of those with disabilities. It is important that we give them the space that is needed to Work.

On a Side Note… News 12 reported the story BUT since they used the words Allegedly so many times, I did not think they were worth giving the traffic to. Can someone please explain to me how a Guide Dog is ALLEGEDLY Attacked???
Both Elvis and Amy are better, but there is no doubt that emotional scars have been left.
Get better Elvis and Thank you for what you do!!
