Manny is a male black lab born on February 8, 2005, to Freeman and Rajean. He was raised by Dianna as her 1st Guide puppy. Manny graduated in December 2006 as a K-9 Buddy.


A K-9 Buddy is a dog not suited for guidework but instead matched with a visually impaired child. K-9 Buddies do not have the same public access as working Guide dogs. These dogs are calm and wonderful for children to learn the responsibilties and bonding with a dog.
