Dog-less life unimaginable

Donald Hunt couldn't imagine life without Zues his dog.

Thirty years ago a congenital condition left the Waimate man blind, and for nearly two decades he has been guided by a dog.

Yesterday he was in Timaru helping the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind with its annual appeal. The Red Puppy Appeal runs until Sunday.

"Zues is very important to me," Mr Hunt said.

The golden retriever was his third guide dog. He had had him for five years."He's a great natured dog and very submissive. "He always does what is asked of him." MORE>>

The doglinks' team went out last night in Christchurch collecting for the Red Puppy Appeal. Our dog Holmes got lots of pat and many people were very generous. Some giving twice. We hit the streets in town around 7pm and didn't leave well over 9pm. We always have a good time, but I must admit that my feet were getting a bit tired.

Holmes did his bit for his fellow canine cousins. Well done Holmes!
