I just feel so much happier and more confident with her around. I think I under estimated the sheer frustration a guide dog can put you through sometimes- refusing to eat and having desperate desires to lead you into wheelie bins- but I blooming know now! She can be a pain, but I love her. Despite her stealing my morning lie ins, I actually quite enjoy our early mornings together, putting the kettle on and if the weather is nice sitting out in the garden together. It's just been a fantastic summer, and a fantastic experience which is going to stretch on for a long time to come. I've got so much to look forward to sharing with her: going to guides, her meeting the brownies, hopefully travelling, and the sense of independence I get from her seems to increase constantly. I don't feel like I have a dog with a job anymore, it feels like she is there to look after me. I understand her and she definitely understands me.
