In an early morning of 1986, a Labrador gave birth to five puppies.

One of them had a black seagull-shaped spot on his side. This dog's cleverness made his owner Ren's mind: he would like at least one of his dogs to become a guide dog. This was his long-cherished dream.
The dog was named Quill and became a fine guide dog.

"Quill --- The Life of a Guide Dog" is a record of Quill's entire life, from his birth until the last day.
