Mermaids in Our Midst: Back River Bungalow Guests

We never get tired of hearing from our guests! Each of you become part of the Mermaid family when you visit, and we cherish every one of you! Here are two recent emails from happy Mermaids about their stay at Back River Bungalow Cottage:

“I had such a wonderful time staying at the property as well as touring Tybee Island. The people there treated us like we belong at the house. We had the opportunity to use some of the recipes from Paula Deen’s cook book. It was very very good!”
· By Amazing from Memphis, TN 

“We enjoyed the quiet setting, lounging on the back and front porches with the breezes. Great place to enjoy your morning coffee or a late night drink. We walked to restaurants and in the neighborhood. Great times were had by all.”
· By L. Horseman from Louisville, KY

Thank you both so much for taking the time to share. Don’t be strangers…We hope to see you again real soon!

Berkeley Springs: A Guide To Life

We received this update on Berkeley Springs, one of our sponsored Guide Dog puppies in training.  He’s very close to graduating and may be paired with a person with a disability, soon!

Berkeley Springs is finishing up his guide training and is working on the subways, doing city work and crowd work, taking country walks, mall work and riding escalators.  They are increasing distraction levels on all of his work and maintaining levels of concentration.  He has some slight noise sensitivity, but that is all.  His trainer says that he loves him and he is doing very well.

Join us in sending our well wishes and support to Berkeley Springs as he reaches this important milestone in his training.  His life of service will mean a more independent life and freedom for a person with disabilities.

Go forth young Berkeley Springs!  You can do it!
