Now that's a talented service dog...

So, I'm sitting at a McDonalds for free wifi right now. I'd been using my phones internet connection with my laptop for the last month or so but in the new house reception sucks and I need to get my cable hooked back up.

A couple sits down at the table directly next to me. I'm reading on the screen, and typing as I chat to someone in messenger. The guy comments on Tessa, who is laying on the floor behind my chair against the wall. Says that she must be a guide dog, and I'm blind.

Now thats a talented dog! She can help me read my computer screen from the floor behind my chair

I laughed and turned and let them know that I wasn't blind, there are many types of service dogs in addition to those for the blind.

reminds me of a time when we were submitting something to be converted to Braille and one of my co-workers asked if we need to make anything for deaf people also...
...as far as I know, there is no secret alphabet...

Had the same situation at WalMart. Here I am shopping happily, alone, looking at my shopping list, pulling things of the shelves. Someone says to their child "see that doggy, he's helping her because she's blind". Go figure.

Man sit in a McDonalds long enough and you hear LOTS of comments...

Now there's a bunch of guys a few tables away talking about me. One guy was saying "thats a dog that helps the blind" and then someone said how I wasnt blind, and he replies "she's the owner but the dog helps blind people"
