Tune into Fox 13's Good Day Tampa Bay tomorrow morning for a LIVE visit with Charley Belcher of "Charley's World" between 6:45 and 9:30 am. Charley will be going "Back to School" with the big dogs of Southeastern Guide Dogs, learning with them as they go through their Canine Fitness training outside, including IN THEIR VERY OWN POOL.

“I can’t believe God has blessed me so much and how much I’ve learned over these last 25 years working with Southeastern Guide Dogs. I have no fear of the future because I know my dog is going to get me through…and I understand how much blind people live and move about and are such a fantastic part of society.”

So happy to see this. To know all is going well. For those who don't know, Alice raised one of my dogs. So good to hear how you are doing with your new dog, Alice.
I'm humbled and awe inspired by these amazing people who open up their hearts and their homes to raise a gift that is far reaching in the lives of others! Thank you!
Alice, we miss you and Bob. And we never got to meet your dog in person. I feel so disappointed but so very very happy that you have a great bonding. I know you and your guide will do beautifully together! We miss you!
I was in class 286 and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Miss Alice and for well. One of the nicest ladies you will ever meet and she ended up with one of the most calm and gentle dog you could’ve imagined.
Alice wrote a sweet book 'Hello, I Love You, Goodbye' from when she was a puppy raiser. You can purchase her book on Amazon if interested. Now she has Farwell by her side <3
Alice is the best! ❤️
Alice and Farwell, you make a fantastic team!

For people with vision loss, choosing a guide dog school is a life-altering decision. We want people to overcome fear, realize what’s possible, and imagine a beautiful dog with a wagging tail guiding them to independence. If you know someone who could use the gift of a guide dog, please share our newest video: Southeastern Guide Dogs: Smart Dogs, Smart Choice.

It's time for 𝐏𝐚𝐰𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐂𝐢𝐫𝐜𝐮𝐦𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞! Hesitation clouded 18-year-old Darcey’s mind just before his high school graduation. Darcey’s concerns were valid, with his vision permanently diminished due to macular degeneration. “He was so nervous,” says his mom, Jaleen. “He thought he was going to trip over something or get disoriented.” But with help from Darcey’s guide dog, Ferguson, the event went without a hitch. Proud and confident, the pair donned cap and gown and joined their senior class. “I think I was crying more at the fact that I had just officially watched the two of them work together alone,” says Jaleen. “IT WAS AMAZING!!!” Join us in congratulating Darcey! ...

Congratulations to a great team!! I remember the day my husband and his then guide Christopher walked across the stage at U.S.F. like it was yesterday. The pair got a standing ovation and we were all all crying, so proud of him for graduating and for the team successfully walking the stage. Southeastern really does change lives.
