This is one of my classmates named Laurie.
She is from St. Paul Minnesota.
another good girl!

Today, Monday we were bussed back to the center at Rochester.

This time there were barricaids to work around. I was awed to watch Phoebe when ever we reached one.

She would look bothways to see what was the easiest. Then she would guide me around it back to the sidewalk on the other side.

This afternoon all of us were given a talking" Breeze "G P S finder. I get to keep it if it works for me.
I can hear it, but there was too much information to take in while walking and watching where Phoebe was going.
I have the rest of the week to try it out and do some adjusting.

We will see.
Tonight we have lectures.
We are constantly learning more and more about dogs.
There is so much to know...

I am glad it all is on C D's that we get to take home with us.

There is so much information, I don't think I can retain it all!!

It is heading towards the five oclock feeding time..

I had better get my stuff together and check in
Check in tomorrow see what happens next!!

Cool!!! Sounds like there are all sorts of technological advances out there for blind people that we didn't know about.

Keep up the studying!

Mom, that GPS will work just fine when you stop watching where Phoebe is walking, and just walk.. You'll get there! It's a lot of trust to puut into one tiny furry little body, I'm sure!

I am pretty sure Phoebe will help you out with the GPS. Does it work in French too ?

This is fun reading about your new life.
