For Example ...
A patient yesterday was telling me about his current gulde dog and the six dogs he has worked with over the years.
All very special, much loved dogs who have shared his life.
He went on to tell me about a young lady who had been born badly affected by Thalidomide. She longed for a guide dog but was refused one because she had very short arms and could not fasten the dog's harness.
This young lady was a single mother with two young children and she coped amazingly well, performing tasks by her feet.
Needless to say after a lot of determined effort she learnt to take the harness on and off a dog using her toes.
She was given a guide dog who matched her in diligence and intelligence and together they brought up her two children.
