About Me

I am a yellow female lab that was donated to the Southeastern Guide Dogs, Inc. I hope to one day become a seeing eye dog to give freedom to someone who cannot see.

Harness Time

Well, this past week I got this new contraption that my furraiser calls a harness.  I guess it's like the one that I hope to be wearing when I get paired with a blind person.  It's heavier then my jacket and a bit awkward as well but I think I'm getting the hang of it.

My furraiser took me shopping for school supplies this weekend and I got to wear the harness.  I had alot of practice in it walking back and forth and with all the other people trying to get last minute things for thier kids.  I also got to wear the harness when me and my furraiser went to church.  I've learned how to comfortably stretch out on the floor with it on and go to sleep.

The only thing that I have noticed is that even though the harness has a big sign on it that I'm working, people just can't resist wanting to pet me.  It really distracts me from what I'm supposed to be doing.  I wish people would learn what it really means to be guide dog.  Oh well...maybe some day they will.

Wags and Wiggles for now,
