Rebecca Minelga is an author, speaker, and Puppy Raiser for Guide Dogs for the Blind. She uses her passion for words to navigate the liminal space between who we were and who we are becoming.
Rebecca was thrilled to work closely with KTF Films and Guide Dogs for the Blind to present Pick of the Litter, an award-winning, feature-length documentary following five puppies from birth through advanced training in their quest to become guide dogs for blind- or visually-disabled individuals.
Her accompanying book, now represented by Carrie Howland of Howland Literary, chronicles the last decade spent raising puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
Rebecca and her family welcomed WINNIPEG on August 25th, 2019. She is Rebecca’s tenth puppy.
