Afraid of dogs?
I met someone yesterday who said she was terrified of dogs. My guide dog was out of harness and others were patting her. This lady came right up to her too. I don't know if she patted her but she didn't run the other way. Over my years of having guide dogs, I've met several dog phobic people who tolerated and even grew to love my guides. One person even made quilts for them. I am not sure if it is their training, their calmness, their ability to read people, or why exactly these dog afraid people warm up to my girls. Of course, there are some who don't. But, there are more who do. Here's to the guide dog making friends wherever she goes!
