Assistance dogs to show off skills

   The Sammamish Valley Grange invites the public to a free demonstration of assistance dogs Sept. 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the grange hall. The demonstration will replace the grange's regular meeting.
   These dogs, unlike the well-known seeing eye dogs, are adopted from animal shelters and then trained by the Delta Society to assist disabled and handicapped people. Following training, each dog is matched to its new owner.
   The grange is currently making its annual contribution to the society.
   The grange is located at 14654 148th Ave NE, 800 feet north of Hollywood Schoolhouse.
