Just wanted to let you all know, there is not a picture today.........
we went to Detroit to train in the city.

What a huge disapointment!!

It made me appreciate the city of Portland all the more!
Detroit was almost a ghost
town. This is the downtown area that we went to. All the buildings were a blah color.
Nothing fancy or out of the ordinary. Okay, a couple were, but in general... It sucked!

There was not a Starbucks to be found!
I am told that have them here, just not there, Downtown Detroit!
It was raining and in gereral pretty crappy.
Phoebe and I did encounter a few nice puddles.
The way she handled one was...
she walked around it and guided me right thru it!!




The next puddle we BOTH went around it!!

She is getting it figured out. The main difference is that I am on to her!

We will work it out, together.

We had another class working with our Breeze, the G P S thing we got.
Tonight after dinner, we will learn how to brush their teeth!!

The dog's teeth that is!

I am hoping it gets over in time so some of us can go over to the Mall across the street...

we will see.


good bye for now

I guess walking you through a puddle is better than jumping over it and DRAGGING you through it.....


I always heard Detroit was not a nice place. At least you had the rain to remind you of home!! (although it has been a REALLY nice couple of days, sunny and warm)

Only one more week to go!!

Yah, Detroit scares me. Remind me when you get home, there is an awesome photographer I follow that lives in Detroit and takes some of the most incredible photos... mostly of entire abandoned neighborhoods that are reclaimed by nature, or whole city blocks covered, every inch, in spray paint. Insane. I'm assuming they have plenty of guards/helpful sighted people with you on these outings? After all, Detroit has been rated the most dangerous city in the US......

I did not really see any one to be scared of!!

I'm sure you didn't "see" them. That being the point of the visit, lol!!!!!

Well, it doesn't sound like one of your "better" days. Hopefully the reason we haven't heard from you for a couple of days is that you are having such fun you have no time to bother with us non-leader-dog-family rifraf. ;)
