A group of puppies got to visit with Atascadero firefighters Wednesday as part of their training to be guide dogs for the blind.
An organization called Paws 4 Sight in San Luis Obispo raises the guide dogs, and a goal of the training program is to expose the animals to loud noises and different environments so they can learn to handle new situations.
Here, decked out in all their gear, firefighters Jackson Light, left, and Evan Wilson pet puppy Jaffe.
