Interesting one Jackie. Now I am of the opposite view point. I hate a white stick, it gets stuck in the pavement and above all I feel 'blind' with it. My Guide Dog is my eyes and that is for true.

So you wear a heavy coat for the winter, and a lighter one in the
summer.  You have an evening bag to go out somewhere special (least I
do), and an ordinary bag for day-to-day purposes.  Now you need a guide
dog for the city, and perhaps another dog with a  different temperament
for more sedate strolls?  You're having a laugh!! (chuckle).

Frankly, it's why I would never ever have another guide dog if I were
paid millions, because there are too many rules and regulations, and the
dog always seems to be right in the eyes of the Association, not the
owner.  I've heard time and again from people that the standard of dog
training has dropped.  Each to their own, of course, but give me the
white cane any day of the week.

Hi Andy
You A did say  and I quote:

"each of us are a credit to  the organization,"

So no problems then!


"So people like me, who have a little peripheral vision, are walking
about  with dogs, which can in a flick of a second, get us killed."

But those people witn  no sight at all, must surely be at more risk!

i feel the mista\ke you have made is to make  threats.
I mean you  said you:

"Made a lot of noise  and threats about seeing a lawyer"

In another post you said you were told:

"it was not quite a good idea to take my dog into Glasgow during the
festive season stating that the streets were very busy at this time of
the year."

Well given GDBA said that, I feel that's  proof they are taking your
safety  seriously.

If they feel you are not able  to manage  very busy  conditions, they
will not recommend you do it.

Regards,  Derek
