Izzy the super guidedog!

Hi all, my name is Izzy and I am a black Labrador guide dog aged eight and three quarters! This is my first ever posting so please forgive my "paw" typing and grammar. I guide a blind bloke named Mike and have just returned from a trip up to London so that Mike, (who is always talking) could show some other VI people some computer games and then take part in a research project into accessible gym equipment.

The trains were hot and I got trodden on a bit on the tube! People seemed to be on their phones even getting on a train and so didn't see me! We are trained not to bite people even though I feel like it sometimes! There wasn't even much food on the floor for me to snaffle, so all I could do was have a sleep.

I have a busy schedule coming up with lunches, a dinner and then a trip to the Paralympic Athletic World Champs. I don't think there are any dog races on the programme, although there are blind athletes so why not us dogs! Discrimination! Will let you know how it goes, if any dogs read this posting would be very interested to hear from you!
