I am pleased to announce that my new guide dog is "Nira"–a female yellow Labrador. I will be meeting her for the first time in about ten minutes.
All I know for sure is that she’s a tall, fast, and poised guide dog.
I feel a little like an adoptive parent waiting in the anteroom of the orphanage. Or maybe I feel a little like a Sweepstakes winner.
One thing’s for sure: I feel very lucky to be making her acquaintance.
