Guide Dog Adam – 19 February 1999

19 February 1999, Museum Station, Melbourne

Soon after Hawkeye went to doggy heaven, I was offered another puppy to train.

Adam had begun his journey towards being a guide dog in Tasmania, but due to changes in that state’s dealings with the guide dog association, he was repatriated to his home in Victoria where he continued his work with me.

Adam came for his first photobooth photo shoot within days of arriving at my place. He was 11 months old in this first strip.

This strip is part of the series Photobooth 41 Year Project. You can see all the posts that document the series by clicking here.

    Where is Adam and what’s he doing now?


    • He would be an old boy now, almost 14 years old. He was returned to his first family in Tasmania after he was found to have elbow dysplasia and was therefore unable to fulfill his role as a guide dog. He was unable to complete his full training, so was offered back to the people who had looked after him for his first 10 months of life.
