  1. @Menzel12846 Thanks for wishing me luck with getting my guide dog. I really appreciate it. Are you a guy dog owner at the moment? If so, what has your experience been like? And if you have any recommendations to pass on to me, as far as what I should do to be a good guy dog owner, that would really help a lot.
    Thanks.

  2. I had a chance to meet Ariel Gilbert, the president of Guide Dogs for the Blind a few months ago. She was very nice, and she wished me luck with getting a guide dog.
