We spent the evening last night with some blind people and some sighted people, and several guide dogs. It was in honour of a friend's birthday. Much of the time, we spent out in the yard. Since I don't have a yard, it is always nice to do that. The three guide dogs ran and played, drank water, chased toys, and then would hang out with us or around our feet. It amazed me that Tulia often came and sat by me even though she was off leash and loose. I'd put my hand out and there was her little black head. She is such a fast runner. she would often get the toy and then let other dogs steal it. It was so amazing to be there with such wonderful people. We come from diverse backgrounds and locations. From Newfoundland, to the prairies, Ontario, someone even originally from France. Someone else from another country too. We have different careers, family situations. We might not have met if we hadn't been blind. We had a fabulous dinner, cake, and lots of chat and laughter.
If I hadn't been blind, I might not have met these great people and guide dogs.
