  • PARTNERS IN INDEPENDENCE:  A Success Story of Dogs and the Disabled by Ed and Toni Eames

    The intelligent and alert guide dog leading a blind partner through a busy matrix of complex streets has become a familiar sight. Less familiar, but just as dramatic, are the hearing and service dogs who, through an incredible diversity of tasks, improve the quality of life for people with other disabilities. Partners in Independence is about those dogs and the disabled people whose lives they enhance. These are the stories of visionaries who recognized the potential and converted canine potentialities into realities. Thanks to the dogs you will meet in this book, thousands of disabled people enjoy more enriched lives. They pursue careers, attend school, make friends, and cope with the situations each day brings. They and their dogs are best friends in the truest sense of the word. Ed and Toni Eames are active members of the world they describe. With their guide dogs, they have traveled the world, educated others and met a diverse segment of humanity featured in this book. They present the challenge, the humor, the determination and the pathos familiar to disabled people everywhere who confidently go through doors opened with the help of their canine partners!

    Includes chapters on the history of assistance dogs, traveling with assistance dogs, caring for assistance dogs, rights of the disabled and contact information to the assistance dog world.
