Hiya humans!
It’s May! And you may or may not know that tomorrow is Star Wars Day! It’s a day to celebrate all things having to do with the Star Wars movie. Not everyone understands this, so I will dogsplain…
The date was chosen for the pun on the catchphrase “May the Force be with you” as “May the Fourth be with you.” Get it??! I knew you would. Now you can be the hip one in the room.
Speaking of all things Star Wars, have you met a Seeing Eye dog named Ewok?
Back in October, Ewok and his owner Carlos became our 17,000th partnership!!!
When we reached Carlos he said, “I had no clue whatsoever that so many dogs had been placed by The Seeing Eye. When I was informed of that, I was just shocked. It’s amazing to think of 17,000 dogs over the history of The Seeing Eye since 1929. Also the perspective of being the 17,000th and representing the guide dog school that I have so much admiration and appreciation for is such an honor.”
So is Carlos a Star Wars fan? He said he’s always been more of a Trekkie but since falling in love with his furry, lovable Ewok, he’s given the series another chance and it’s definitely growing on him!
May the 4th be with you!
Woof and wookiees,
— Mickey
