I got an email from Michelle in Australia who stumbled across the blog. Woohoo! She told me a story and asked me if I’ve had the same thing. I’d have to say no.
She asked if I’ve ever had someone actually physically grab and try to drag my dog a few inches away from another guide dog because the person doing the dragging thought the dogs would get too excited. Um, eek. I’ve had people think they should guide me by grabbing the dog’s leash, or they stand all close and grab the handle as if it’s what you direct the dog with, but I’ve never had them grab the harness handle and drag Trixie somewhere…and I hope I never do!
