We're appealing for people across Scotland to volunteer as puppy walkers.

Can you guide the way for someone with sight loss?

Frankie and Flynn's Queen's Baton Relay honour

Frankie Thomson Baton Relay Handover300

Guide dog owner Frankie Thomson says it was one of the greatest days of his life when he recently took part in the Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay through his hometown of Loanhead, outside Edinburgh.

And it was important to Frankie that guide dog Flynn was there to share the limelight, as he credits Flynn with turning his life around.

For many first time guide dog owners, being matched with a guide dog is an exciting but challenging experience - but for Frankie, who was born deaf and has no speech, the challenges were all the greater.
