Hello all.  Since we've been chatting about puppies and getting around in snowy 
weather, here is a true story which will give you a chuckle or two.

Many years ago I worked with a young woman who had a dog guide.   She was the 
sweetest little black lab, and every morning she would go from desk to desk for 
her morning hug or pat.  .  Well, one day I was chatting with Nellie, the dog's 
owner, and she said, "you think she's so sweet?  I'll tell you how sweet she 
is."  She proceeded to tell me that one snowy day the two of them were walking 
along a rather slippery street and Nellie slipped on a patch of ice and fell.  
She didn't hurt herself, but was a bit shaken, so she sat and reached to find 
the dog's leash.  She could find it, so she called and called her by name to no 

Finally, someone came along and asked if she needed some assistance.  Nellie 
explained what happened and asked if she saw her dog.  The lady answered, "Oh 
yes, she's sitting down waiting for you at the corner".  Well folks, that 
really tickled my funny bone, and whenever I think of that incident I just have 
to laugh.  Dogs certainly have their idiosyncrasies, don't they?
