Hi, my name's Rilla but my close friends call me Gorilla. I'm a nine year old guide dog and, as a working girl, my favourite time of the day has got to be 6.00pm; dinner time!

I have always loved animals and took pictures of them to capture their personalities and memories using my parent's camera. When I adopted my first dog, Bracken, I decided to get my own camera. I took photos of his antics almost daily, whether he was giving his paw, doing a brilliant sit, or grabbing a toy and running like mad! It was great fun for both of us.

Police Dog Handler In The R A F

I joined the R A F in order to become a police dog handler. After passing my police exam, I did six weeks training with a dog named Rustler. The dog was posted, but not the handler and this dog was posted to Gibraltar without me.
