Day Nine at Guide Dogs

A day of great success.

Guide dog training is becoming more intense. Today's lesson involved traffic mishaps. Cars that pull out in front of you or approach head on. The dogs are trained in these eventuaities. Burgess led me through blocked sidewalks, and errant traffic like a pro. He's like a dog on remote control, ticking off his duties in stellar fashion. Every day I feel more comfortable with him as my guide, It's exhilerating walking the streets beside this noble creature, and I'm confident that should I ever lose what minimal sight I have left, my friend and protector will step in admirably.

Oh yes, and today's lesson is:

"If you're in the wrong, admit it."
