Hi, I have a Seeing Eye Dog too. A good school is vital. I've had
wonderful dogs from Seeing Eye. I had polio in my right leg and
so they have to pick out a really super dog that will be careful
of sidewalk bumps and edges. I'm on dog 4 now, and they have
picked out wonderful matches for me.
Izzy is a black labradore female and will be 7 years old in September. I live alone so I can't imagine being here without her. She's not only a great guide, but a wonderful companion and my best friend. It's nice to hear about others on the list. It makes people more real. I'll do an email about me soon.
Jane and Izzy

Pay attention to some particular things about schools. Noticethe people
who work well with dogs. They tend to get dogs from certainyou are
schools. Perhaps you can also visit with folks from schools if
ever at blindness conventions and such. I think the follow upand support
a school offers is vital to its graduates. All my dog trainingand dogs
have been with Seeing Eye. I partnered with my first dog in1970. Have
had dog partners since then most of the time with some year or sobreaks
between at various times for various reasons. Dogs are trulywonderful
beings. They are so empathetic and good spirited.
Burton is going to be four in December. He is a black lab. Ihave been
with him since he was two. He loves to go hiking besides workingwell on
city streets or in my small town.
