A Door County man has found the furry companion that will help him become more active after he lost his vision four years ago. Everett Lang, 53, of Brussels graduated from the Guiding Eyes for the Blind in Yorktown Heights, New York last week. After three weeks of training, Lang was paired up with a guide dog named “Sunny” who is a yellow lab. Lang, who was one of twelve graduates from all across America, says he has already been saved by “Sunny” before the residential training program was completed.
Lang says that it is serendipity that his matched guide dog is named “Sunny” since he works at the Sunshine House in Sturgeon Bay.
