This Thanksgiving in addition to all I have to give thanks for, I am also thankful for my new guide dog Carmel. Carmel and I were matched on May 24, 2010, and so will be together a half year tomorrow. It is amazing! My daughter Olivia said yesterday that it is hard to remember life before Carmel, and I have to say that is true.
Carmel and I are doing well. She is maturing every day. She is learning and more important I am learning. We have travelled a lot-about 5 trips and daily get plenty of opportunities to build skills.
Of course, when the harness comes off-she is a puppy.
She has quite a personality, and it comes out more and more.
She is well loved and much appreciated.
