About the author: Cheryl McNeil Fisher has a bachelor’s degree in counseling from SUNY and attended the divinity program at Bethel University. For the past twenty years, she has been speaking throughout the United States about blindness and how her guide dog has transformed her life, even appearing on Martha Stewart’s radio program. She lives in Shawangunk, New York.
Author Cheryl McNeil Fisher often meets children who ask her about her constant companion, Sanka, her devoted guide dog. She decided that she wanted to help young children understand how Sanka supports and helps her in her often challenging day-to-day life. The educational and touching book is very cleverly written through the eyes of Sammy the guide dog, a retriever. It goes through all the things on their trip to the mall and daily life what Sammy does for Cindy, who is legally blind. It also describes the challenges that Sammy goes through, such as trying not to sniff a toy and fighting the desire to be pet (which he can’t be because hes working). This is a great book and could really help children understand guide dogs and little bit about the people they help.
