Canine Assistants Scrapbook Layouts
The Golden Retriever Windy Scott
Here are a few layouts from a Canine Assistants Scrapbook that you can copy to honor that special member of your family into your scrapbooks. Do you have a fantastic canine that you need to do some dog themed scrapbook layouts for? Why not an entire Album?
who is featured here in these layouts was for many years a Canine Assistant
as her jacket proudly displays. The photos of Windy
depict her in her work as a Canine Assistant reading with children.
Here, she even has her own book plate design. Other photos show her at home with her "people" family and as a mother with her "fur" families. Many of her puppies have also been trained to be Canine Assistants so her legacy lives on and on.
Windy is even famous.
As you will see she has her own Hollywood Star
, she was indicted into the 2007 Animal Hall of Fame,
and is one of the puppies on the cover of the Milk-Bone Dog Biscuits package.

Canine Assistants is a program founded in Alpharetta, Georgia, in 1991. The Canine Assistants Scrapbook page hopes to promote this nonprofit organization which is dedicated to providing service dogs to children and adults with epilepsy, physical disabilities, and other special needs.
Canine Assistants' service dogs open doors, pull wheelchairs and turn on lights. But the most important contribution the service dogs offer is the self-esteem and happiness they create - and the social barriers they help remove.

When you buy Milk-Bone, you're helping to donate service dogs to those who need them the most. For more information about the Canine Assistants organization, please call 1-800-771-7221 or visit their website at
