Peggy Brown of Tucker, Ga., with her yellow Lab guide Marlette
“My husband Steve and I have been teaching martial arts for over 16 years. Marlette likes to sit on the sidelines and watch the action, but when it’s time to go somewhere, she’s raring to go. We enjoy our daily walks in the neighborhood. To us there is nothing as invigorating as a great workout.
“Before I lost my vision, my life was extremely fast paced. I was a full-time administrator in healthcare, taught martial arts three times per week, took care of our home, yard, two dogs and made time for volunteering, piano and working out as much as my body would allow. It makes me tired just thinking about it. After I got Marlette, I never thought about doing anything differently. Where I go, Marlette goes!”
