Hello, Me and Frazer had a fantastic day yesterday…We got invited to an event organised by Barclays bank. It was where all the assistance dog charities got together to raise awareness and funds and Barclays will match whatever wev’e raised. I’m completely exhausted, but it was so good to put something back. Iv’e had Frazer as a Canine Partner for over a year now and it was quite an emotional event. Guide dogs and Canine Partners, have both had a part in Frazers life, He was originally breed and trained by Guide dogs but was withdrawn as a puppy because of a slight cataract in one eye…However he then went on to be trained by Canine Partners as an assistance dog for me,So he’s kind of had a career change. Its funny sometimes I moan and I really shouldn’t …yesterday reminded me of how fortunate i am, One lady who asked what he did for me after we’d watched a fantastic display of a dog emptying a washing machine…Yes he can do that! but the biggest thing and the most important thing he has done is to give me my life back!..I didn’t just lose my mobility, I lost my confidence and i’m so glad that he’s given me that back… i’d have never imagined how good things could be.
