Many people around town have gotten to know Lego over the years. Lego has been local resident Sandy Lecour’s faithful vision impairment service dog and now, at the age of 9, is ready to retire and live out the rest of his life as a regular pet.

Sandy told me she wants to wrap up Lego’s service dog career in style with a big party this Friday night featuring the Elektric Squirrels, a band that’s been entertaining great local events for 30 years!  We also spoke about how she’s feeling about meeting her new service dog later this month.

Chasing Squirrels – Lego’s Retirement Party takes place Friday, February 15th at the Canmore Golf & Curling Club.  Music starts at 8 PM but feel free to show up early for dinner.  Tickets $25 available at Rusticana and online here.  All proceeds from the show support the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides, an organization that’s been helping people like Sandy for over 60 years!
