February 2022 Main Meeting – Dogs for Good

Melanie welcomed 26 members and 2 guests to our 84th Birthday meeting, and introduced our visitor Mary Lamb with her dog Kingsley.

She gave us a fascinating talk about the Charity ‘Dogs for Good’ . They breed and train dogs to help adults and children with disabilities, children with autism and adults with dementia.

She read a poem, illustrated with pictures, about her first dog Yan which gave a great insight into the very special bond which they built together. Yan is now retired and her new dog Kingsley is settling in well with her. They demonstrated how Kingsley helps her pick things up, brings medication etc on command, helps her undress and gives her invaluable support around the house and outdoors.

After a short break Chris Jones showed us the beautiful button tree that Annette and many members have helped create with her. It illustrates the way friendship within Whitley WI blossomed over her 3 years as President.
