Service Dogs

We went to my uncle’s house last weekend to visit them and at the same time see my aunt who will be going to the US for vacation. It was really nice to see him and his family again after not seeing them for a few months. We are close to this uncle because we used to live in his quarters when he was still in the military. We left his quarters when I got married and he also retired after a few years. Anyhow, we were talking about various topics last Saturday, from my cousins’ activities in school, to the hostage taking, to what my aunt needs to prepare for her vacation and we also talked about their dog poko. Poko is not like the Service Dogs but a pet dog that is so cute. But even if he is not a service dog, my uncle said he is trained also that they know if there is a stranger near their house. Speaking of service dogs, I saw one when we were at the mall a few weeks ago. The dog was assisting a blind man and I was amazed at how this dog can really help his owner. He also looks cute in his Service Dog Vest made by Ruff Wear which has the same color as the blind man’s shirt. I don’t know if they are wearing the same color on purpose so that they can easily be seen or it was just a coincidence. Anyhow, I’m really thankful that dogs can be trained for they really are a big help especially to the disabled.
