Guess Who Got His Vest?

Last Friday Giant got tested for his vest. The vest declares him to be a 'Guiding Eyes for the Blind' dog and enables Dawn to take him many more locations, like stores and the farmer's market.


Giant's first farmer's market visit went beautifully. He ignored most of the people, and even didn't freak out when another dog was barking, barking, barking at him.


Many people asked Dawn for information about Giant. And stated that they could NEVER do this since they would have to give up the dog after a year. Which makes me wonder why people don't say that about having kids. 'I could NEVER have kids because I would have to give them up when they grow up.' Right?

Actually, one of the reasons I won't have kids is I can't imagine having to feed them for 20 years. If they'd leave after two like boyfriends, I'd look into it.

And I'm so jealous of the vest. I've been wondering how I could get my dog certified as some sort of helper... Say, because I'm mentally ill and I need her to keep me sane... Apparently we the mentally ill don't get to take our helper dogs everywhere. :(

Great job, you guys. Nice to see things are moving along. As for people saying that they could never do it, what they are really saying is "I don't want to do it." It's being a bit overly dramatic to say you could never do something, don't you think? People should give themselves more credit, or stop making mountains out of mole hills.
