Meet The Osmonds!

Marie Osmond with Lorri Bernson and Bryan Young and three GDA dogsRecently, Guide Dogs of America was invited to the “Marie” show hosted by Marie Osmond.

GDA’s Media and Community Liaison Lorri Bernson sat down with Marie to talk about GDA’s programs and our wonderful volunteer puppy raisers. Lorri also shared how the school has changed her life for the better – she’s not only GDA staff but a two-time graduate! The ladies were joined by Lorri’s guide dog Carter and GDA puppy-in-training Elena.

In the second part of the interview one of GDA’s Licensed Guide Dog Instructors, Bryan Young, assisted Marie in a blindfold walk through an obstacle course with GDA guide-dog-in-training Legacy.

At the end of their visit, Lorri presented Marie with photos of one of GDA’s newest puppies-in-training, who we have named Osmond in honor of Marie and her family who have been such a part of so many of our lives.

Watch the full segment, as it aired on the Hallmark Channel.

Thank you for the wonderful visit, Marie, and we look forward to giving you “pupdates” on Osmond’s progress while he’s in training!
