Leader Dog Dinner
Last night Hubby and I went to a benefit dinner for the Leader Dog Organization. As part of the program they had several people talk about their experience wit a Leader Dog. One man told about being an ordinary kid and getting his drivers license at 16 , his pilots license at 21, and having a fulfilling career. He always had some trouble with his night vision. Gradually he began to lose his peripheral vision. Upon examination the doctor told him he had retinal degeneration and would become blind. He did. He told about having 80 to 100 people working for him and then being let go by his company because he could not see. It really is mind blowing to think of something like that happening to someone.
