Hearing Dog Program Celebrates First Graduation with 4 Hearing Dogs
The first graduation of The Hearing Dog Program was held May 11, 2009. Four Hearing Dogs and their human companions graduated that day: Banjo/Tristan Herkimer, Bounty/Linda Austin, Gotcha/Martha Hoffman, and Rebel/Meredith Alexander.
The ceremony was held at the lovely California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, accompanied by a gourmet lunch cooked up specifically for our event by the chefs. A fun menu included dishes called Scooby Snacks, Puppy's Breath, and Kibbles 'n Bits. Celebrity movie critic and dog lover Jan Wahl hosted the program, and everyone had a great time!
