Story Summary

Dinah feels better about giving up Tizzy, a golden retriever she has trained to be a seeing eye dog, after meeting a blind man in a restaurant with a guide dog just like Tizzy. When he explains how his Bulla made his life worth living again after he lost his sight, and how he wishes he could thank the child who trained Bulla, Dinah realizes how important Tizzy will be as someone's guide dog.
