I saw this girl grazing on the pavement in Clearmont. According to her caption, she is part of an organisation called World for all.
There is also a quote from Nelson Mandela which says

According to their website,

Emily is now about 8 months old, and weights in at over 32kg. She still manages to have that really cute puppy-dog expression on her face “it is such hard work being so cute”.
Here are two of her siblings:
Eccles is Lois’ guide dog. She is a cross between a Labrador and a Golden Retriever. She has always had the gray on the muzzle, but it is starting to get a little more profound.
Cassius is the old boy of the house. Even though he is not a boxer, he is named after Cassius Clay (the boxer). He is starting to feel the cold in his bones, but he is such a lovely dog.
And since today’s pic is of Emily, we will finish off with another pic of her.
