Great things about being blind. The dog on the bus seat.
I'm pretty much a person who sticks to most of the guide dog rules. Although the dogs aren't working while at home, I don't let them on furniture or give them our food etc. Someone was looking after my first guide for a weekend. I'm not quite sure why she wasn't with me, but she wasn't. On the Monday after getting her back, I got on the bus to go to work. I said, "Gwenny sit." and the next thing I knew, she was sitting, on the seat, right beside me, with her head on my shoulder. The driver laughed so hard he had to stop the bus. When I got to work, I called the person and asked, "Did you let Gwenny on your furniture?" There was a long silence and then they admitted that they had. They asked how I knew and I told the bus story. I do know some guide dog handlers let their dogs on the bed, on the couch etc. It's just my preference not to. Poor deprived tulia who is now sound asleep and snoring on her large and comfortable bean bag bed.
