This is an 'elder' guide dog at an ALOUD presentation at the Los Angeles Central Library. Meowmuh went with our auntie, Laurel. The presenter was Stephen Kuusisto, also known as the Blind Poet. He discussed passages in his book about the limits on his life prior to deciding to apply for a guide dog. Of compelling interest was the saga of his sojourn in & through Guide Dog School. The training was extensive &, for the first time, he met hoomans like himself--blind hoomans.
