Service dog makes Canadian history joining Calgary MLA in legislature

There’s a cute Hearing Ear dog showing up for work at the Calgary legislature. His name is Quinn and he’s a miniature poodle.

Quinn

He’s actually creating quite the buzz as he’s the first ever Service dog to be accompanying the Calgary MLA – Heather Forsyth in the Legislature.  Well, truth be told Walker (my Hearing Ear dog) and I once attended a session in Parliament in Victoria, BC in 2010 while I was visiting my brother.

I personally think this is great news and will be a huge awareness for Hearing Ear dogs across Canada, mine included.
