Remembering Seeing Eye Golden Retriever Gene


I just discovered a touching story about married Reverends, one being blind and having had a Golden Retriever Seeing Eye dog.

Reverend Eric Pridmore currently is partnered with Orson, a beautiful Golden Retriever-Black Lab cross guide dog.

Gene, pictured above, died of cancer on January 20, 2006, earlier having been diagnosed with cancer at age 7 in 2002.

In 2002, they almost lost Gene to cancer. He had malignant tumors in three of his legs and underwent surgery at the veterinary oncology department at Auburn University. But Gene regained his strength and for now is not letting anyone else take his place as Eric’s eyes.
