State Dog of New Jersey

Happy to see S2849, which designates the Seeing Eye® dog as the State Dog of New Jersey, pass the Senate unanimously today. Senator Tony A. Bucco was a strong advocate for seeing eye dogs, and it’s good to see his son, Senator Tony M. Bucco, carrying on that legacy.

Each year, The Seeing Eye hosts an online auction fundraiser. One of the items that always generates a fierce bidding war is this custom Seeing Eye dog stuffed animal, fitted with a handmade leather harness crafted by artist Hava Hegenbarth. Other breeds are also offered during the auction, which usually takes place in April.
