I'm sure you've had a lot of good times with Sandy.  I retired my first
dog guide when she was 12 1/2 years old and it was difficult but I got
another dog when I retired her.  I don't like using a cane, I prefer a
dog guide.  It is all about personal choice.

I have a guide dog, and her name is Sandy.  she's a yellow lab, 14 years
old.  I think it will be quite a while before I get another one though.
I really love animals, but I don't do enough traveling to make it worth
a dog's while, and I hate to be so unfair to the dog.  Sandy is really
old now, so I'm sure she doesn't mind, but a young dog would probably
have problems with my lack of travvel.

I don't do enough traveling to make it worth while to get a dog guide. I
love animals and love dogs as pets. I mentioned my favorite pet, Heidi,
who was her own independent, rambunctious, loving character; not as
rambunctious and goofy as Jake, but she just loved everybody and there
wasn't a mean bone in her. She was long and lanky and could bend herself
to get through almost any size gate or door or opening. She had Airdale
eyes and was a mix of Airdale, lab and shepherd. I won't go on any more
about her but she was just like a puppy for all of her 13 years.
Now you know why I love all the dog stories on BCT and on the list!
