Meet Dixie Lander, Ann Humphries!

Dixie Lander Ann Humphries and guide Brego, hike trails at Lake Jocassee

Meet Dixie Lander, Ann Humphries and her guide, Brego! Ann learned about us thru Top Dog Charleston, 2010, where she met with representatives of various guide dog schools. She applied to Southeastern Guide Dogs and she and Brego were matched.

Ann lives in Columbia, SC with Kirk, her husband of 34 years. Since Ann and Brego were matched, they stay very busy and active. Thru Richland County, she has helped organize hiking trips which foster active lifestyle. She says, "Brego is very much a part of the fun!" In addition, they have appeared before the Richland County Council in favor of approving library funding, and are part of their "Vote for Our Library Team."

Ann serves on the advisory board of the South Carolina Library for the Blind, and continues to be an ambassador for Southeastern, Brego's alma mater.

  1. It is true that dogs and humans have an extraordinary bond, and researchers at the University of Arizona need to get to the base of what drives this relationship.We know a ton of it needs to do with their smarts,their smiles and their unbounded limit for cuddles.
