Retiring as a TEAM
Wednesday, January 31, 2018
Many of you remember my trip to Palm Springs in October of 2010 for training to get my first ever guide dog. Her name is Leone. We were a good team. I'm Legally blind and totally deaf with the assistance of a Cochlear implant for my right ear. (The left never worked) Leone has had a few Traumatic experiences in her time with me We don't have a yard so we had to walk in parks or around here. She has witnessed us getting chased down and attacked by aggressive dogs and She recently was attacked and her neck and ear torn in late December. She refused to wwork for me. And she doesn't lunge or bark at other dogs now. She is mellow and submissive. I am always looking for a place with a yard to move to but it's impossible in my situation. She did help me with exercise. I will keep her as a pet and hopefully in the futer get another one. I'm sharing this with you all. Happy New Year!
