On Wednesday night, I watched a documentary on ITV, don’t know if you’ll have seen it, but it was all about Guide Dogs and their training. It got me thinking.
If I Thought I Eventually Needed To, Would I Get A Guide Dog?
My answer is most definitely yes. As you all know, I already have my cane. I know without any doubt that at some point in the future, my eye sight is going to become worse.
I sat and thought after watching this incredibly moving documentary. Would I get one, and I have to be honest, I would, mainly because I can not rely on my cane or family for the rest of my life. I know that some people would think to themselves, my sight won’t ever get worse, but my mind set is not like that. Having RP, I have taught myself to plan for the future, and always to factor in that at some point, I may go totally blind. If that does happen, or if my sight gets so worse, that my cane is no longer useful to me. Then of course I would consider the Guide Dog route. It would be stupid of me not to consider this, of course I hope I don’t have to, but if I needed to, the answer would be YES!
