It's a good thing

We have two blind guys that go to our church every Sunday. One uses a walking stick and people's elbow's to get around. The other uses a seeing eye dog. Recently Peanut has become very facinated with the seeing eye dog. Her doggy wags his tail and on occasion barks and pretty much asks to be petted all the time. This doggy however stands ver still when his owner is still and walks when his owner walks and never wags his tail. I've tried to tell Peanut that he's working and he acts just like her doggy when he's home and off work.

Sunday Peanut watched as the master and dog walked out to their car. "It's a good thing that lady, what's her name?" "Mary" I responded. "Yeah, it's a good thing Mary's here to drive them home."

Yes, Peanut, it's a very good thing!

Well, she's a very practical young lady, isn't she?

No trouble with the crumbs, I hope?

That's insight beyond her years...

Well you know Pontious, I've always told my doctor she was bright. I even remember my doctor's nurses freaking out because her head was small when she was little--of course so was the rest of her.

too funny! walking with someone guiding you is called "Sighted Guide", that's what I'm trying to move Nate into right now. He's doing pretty good. ..but only on someone as short as me! LOL. I expect him to keep getting better using his cane also :)
