Yes, this book is about a DOG, not a cat. We all know most dogs are 'OK' but this dog, Corky, was special. He was Stephen Kuusisto's first guide dog. We thought we knew about guide dogs, right? We didn't know about the time & training it takes to graduate from Guide Dog School. Some don't make it. If they do, they're matched with a blind hooman. Then they have to train the hooman! Train a hooman? Now there's an oxymoron if we ever heard one.
