Question: “Over the past 78 years, This Morris County organization has matched over 14,000 specially bred and trained dogs as guides for persons who are blind or visually impaired.”
Answer: “What is The Seeing Eye?”
“Jeopardy! America’s Favorite Quiz Show®” (and, by the way, Beth Finke’s favorite TV quiz show) is featuring the Seeing Eye during today’s “Clue Crew” segment. The Clue Crew is a group of correspondents who bring clues to life by visiting places and showing them on “Jeopardy!” Past Clue Crew destinations include the pyramids of Egypt and ancient Greek ruins. I guess they view the Seeing Eye as one of the Wonders of the World, too!
My friend Bonnie Lannum uses a Seeing Eye dog and works for the Seeing Eye in Morristown, NJ. She is quoted in the press release about the show:
“We were delighted when the producers of ‘Jeopardy’ approached us about filming clues here at The Seeing Eye last summer,” said The Seeing Eye’s Communications.
Associate Bonnie Lannom. “We were able to represent all aspects of the Seeing Eye program, from puppy raising and dogs in training all the way up to a working dog.”
Back to me. “Jeopardy!” airs in the afternoon here in Chicago, but check your local listings for the time and station in your area. Tune in and test your knowledge along with Hanni and me — and 23 million other viewers!
