The campus of Southeastern Guide Dog School is located in Palmetto, Florida, a
small town south of Tampa. The campus is about 3 or 4 miles from the town of Palmetto
in a rather secluded area. The grounds of the campus are large and beautifully landscaped.
And in a quiet corner of the grounds a new Memorial Garden is being installed to
give us all a private area to memorialize and remember the amazing guides who gave
everything of themselves and asked nothing of us in return except to love them.
Here is an excerpt from the email I received from Southeastern. , "Located in the
southwest corner of the Southeastern Guide Dogs campus, this garden
is a quiet, contemplative spot. Features include opportunities to memorialize a beloved
dog in a beautifully landscaped area.
The garden is visually segregated from surrounding areas and offers the fragrance
of Florida flowers and a unique sense of peaceful remembrance of a dog that has a
special place in your heart. Opportunities for memorials of your dog include bricks,
river rocks and benches.
To get all the details on the Memorial Garden and how you can memorialize your guide,
or the guide of someone you know, send an email to
