Travels with Charley :: Our Beloved Hearing Dog

Woof! I’m Charley, Ellen’s hearing dog for the past three years. As you know, Quinn has been retired for several years and is living the good quiet life at the Inn, so she has asked me to take over the blog. Quinn wants you to know that even though she is an elderly Golden Retriever […]

Daisy Hill Puppy Farm

Says Quinn: Remember when Snoopy returned to Daisy Hill Puppy Farm for a reunion? Earlier this week I had a similar experience. When I was a puppy, my brother Dakota and I went to NEADS, the National Education for Assistive Dog Service, based in West Boylston, MA. From there we went to the prison in […]
