Raising Stanley / Life with Tulia, Montreal QC, November 4, 2018

Raising Stanley / Life with Tulia
in Montreal November 4, 2018 – 2:30pm


Proceeds from this special presentation of Raising Stanley / Life With Tulia will benefit Braille Literacy Canada’s Edie Mourre Scholarship Campaign, and every dollar raised through this event will be matched dollar for dollar by a third party donor.

While the public is increasingly aware of service dogs, very few know much about the process of raising a guide dog puppy or the reality of the working life of a guide dog.

When you see a well-behaved guide dog for the blind walking easily with their handler along crowded streets, do you ever wonder, “How was this dog raised?” or “What’s life like working with a guide dog?” or perhaps “I wonder how the dog knows where to go?”

Using art in the form of storytelling and painting, Raising Stanley / Life With Tulia celebrates and describes the journey from puppyhood to working as a guide dog for the blind to being a pampered, retired pet. Storyteller Kim Kilpatrick and visual artist Karen Bailey have collaborated to bring you on a theatrical journey using storytelling and paintings that capture the essence of the guide dog experience – the good, the funny, and the magical – in a form that entertains and educates all ages, from children to seniors.

Join us after the show for a coffee to discuss what you’ve learned and ask the burning questions that have still gone unanswered.
