Look who came back to visit us at Abbeyfield House in Keynsham this week! Joker is a guide dog ‘in training’ with the The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association (UK) who paid us a return visit so we could see how he was progressing.

Happily he also brought a new friend, Voss, a black Labrador puppy – also in training. Despite his size, Joker is still only 11 months old, and will stay with guardian, David, for another few months, before starting puppy school.

As you can see, our residents had a wonderful time enjoying lots of cuddles and chatting about the dogs. What wonderful work these people (and dogs) do!
