Remember how I talked about how I get asked a lot if Trixie is fully trained? This usually happens after an embarrassing incident. Well, here’s a new twist on it. I’ve now heard that puppy raisers get asked when they’re walking through places with the puppy they’re raising if they’re blind! Now that one is just stupid. The puppy is usually wearing a training jacket. It says the dog’s in training clearly on the jacket. Plus they’re not wearing a harness.
I just wish we could switch the hats and have them get asked if they’re training the puppy and have me get asked if this is my guide dog. It would still be a slight duh, but it would be not as bad as the other way around, especially considering what the puppy raisers get asked.
