Part 12 – My Sponsors!

So Mom got a phone call the other day – GDA phoned to say that a company has chosen to sponsor me!!!

Dennis Jankelow & Associates (Pty) Limited, aka DJA, is a company that specialises in aviation insurance. As part of their social responsibility, they support GDA by sponsoring a Guide Dog puppy-in-training. DJA fully sponsors the raising of a Guide Dog puppy from birth to handover to a blind or special needs recipient (around 18 months!).

This will be the second year in a row that they are giving a full Platinum sponsorship to one lucky pup. They had a look at the photos of my litter, and chose me!! How lucky am I? So they invited me so that all the staff could meet me. They were all so friendly!!! They obviously love dogs. And there was cake!!! But only for the humans … 🙁

Here I am meeting some of the staff.

For more pictures click on and scroll down – they think I’m very cute. I will try to visit them often so they can see how I grow and how my training progresses.

Guide-Dogs relies on fundraising to cover all their costs, which can add up to a lot for each puppy! There are many ways in which you can help GDA – you can volunteer, donate, swipe your MySchool Card with GDA as your beneficiary, leave a bequest or become a puppy raiser.

Next time I will tell you about my visit to a factory!
