I don't know, Jamie; but I do remember that that particular dog had her own 
special way about her.  For example, while at work, she had a few special spots 
where she liked to settle herself.  If someone happened to be standing in a 
spot that she wanted to lie on, she would sort of wine and nudge them until 
they moved, and sometimes she would lie there, but other times she was just 
satisfied with having made the person move and would walk away quite content.  
I really grew to love that dog for her idiosyncrasies, and was sorry when 
Nellie got another job.

  Oh, Maria,
  That is funny! Wonder why the dog didn't stay right beside her? LOL!

    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 avail.  

    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?
