> As we create physical distance between us as protection from the COVID-19 virus, the National Association of Guide Dog Users, a strong & proud division of the National Federation of the blind, Invites you to create social connections and togetherness. “Yappy Hour” is sponsored and hosted by the board of directors of NAGDU. Our first event will be a simple get-acquainted time with no topic nor agenda. In our first Yappy Hour, you are welcome to share with the group your favorite adult beverage, your original food creations, or ask a question about a dog training or behavior concern. In other words, its more about the humans whith guide dogs in their lives than about the dogs. One of our nontopics will be what we can do in the future. For instance, during the holidays, I facilitated a Zoom meeting in which I sent out an ingredient list and taught others how to make home-made egg nog. Maybe we can cook together! Anyone want to learn to make seafood lasagna?
