Valor: ambassadog for the blind

Canines and wine. What a fine pairing.

Tomorrow dog lovers in the Philadelphia area can meet Valor, a 2-year-old black Labrador retriever guide dog, and enjoy samplings of fine wine at the Premium Collection PA Wind & Spirits Store in the Swede Square Shopping Center in Norristown.

Valor and his owner will be on hand to promote Dog House Winery, a California vintner, and guide dog programs. Sales of the wines will benefit Guide Dogs for the Blind, a non-profit group that helps those with vision impairments gain mobility and a better quality of life through lifelong partnerships with dogs.

The wine tasting, which runs from 4 to 6 p.m., is free and open to members of the public age 21 and over. Belly rubs for Valor also are free of charge.
