But after spending months learing to take care of her beloved trainer Jack, why does he suddenly want her to take care of Morris—a strange, clumsy man who wants to wants to change her name to Buddy? Could it be that  Morris needs Kiss to take care of him even more than Jack did? Based on a true story, and featuring realistic black-and-white illustrations by Tim Jessell (plus an appendix with information about German shepherds, the history and training of guide dogs, hosting guide-dog puppies, and much more), this canine confessional is pitch-perfect for smart, dog-crazy, early middle-grade readers!

"Buddy" is the story about the first seeing eye dog. Her original name was Kiss. She was trained and destined for great things. At the end of her training her trainer gave her to Morris Frank, a blind man. Buddy begins her adventures with Morris from pleasure walking, close calls, a maiden voyage, and even a visit to the White House! Buddy proved to the world that seeing eye dogs are special and are needed to guide the blind safely and faithfully.
