47Guide Dog Oakley & NB Sola Gratia
Oakley Continuously Cruises on Narrow Boat Sola Gratia - the first and, so far only, Guide Dog to do so! His owner, Tracey, has 2% vision in just one eye, and can be regularly seen working the locks with the help of Oakley. Along with Tim, the Captain, we are slowly cruising the entire connected Inland Waterways network. A sponsored walk along the Kennet & Avon towpath by Tracey & Oakley has already raised over £5,000, and the total is still rising. This blog follows the day to day exploits of a totally un-average Guide Dog, giving insight into life on the canals from a Guide Dog\'s point of view. Please enjoy and share.
