Here's looking at you, kid

Here's a quickie email I received this morning from my youngest sister, who is blind (her word). She has a cutie Black Lab leader dog named Indigo. She's also a part of a leader dog list-serve. This is from a posting on that list-serve:

Is this what is happening to you, where because you wear glasses, people think you can see? So you don't need your dog?

I have artificial eyes. And yes I had a lady tell me I should be ashamed of myself for using a dog when I could see. I had trained the dog to find all of the ramps in the mall I was at. So we would cruise down the mall as if we knew what we were doing. After so many times (of listening to the woman say this), I finally took my eye out. The lady screamed. When the guard from the phone company came out and asked what was happening, I shared the story. He laughed really hard, telling me that he bet the lady never wanted to cross another blind persons' path.

Ah, the fun having a dog.

  1. It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool!

    Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together.

    I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle. That's not the point. Pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!
