9th Day Of Guide Dog ClassPosted: September 7, 2010
I didn’t feel as tired this morning as I did yesterday morning.&bsp; I think that early night helped heaps.
Up at the break of day again, so that we could prepare for the day, and get the food ready for morning feeding.
It seemed like a glorious morning when I took Ushi out to spend, which was great after yesterday!
I went down for breakfast again at about 8 o’clock. On our way down, we came across a misterious sofa parked in our path. I think I might have veered a bit though, as it was kind of behind the door lol. Oops. Oh well. We got to the restaurant anyway which was good.
I wasn’t needed until about 11 again, so decided to do an obedience session with Ushi. She did great, and we walked almost up to reception, with me getting her to sit ocasionally along the way. She was grand, which was good. We just headed back to our room after that, and waited until about 10 minutes to 11, where I took Ushi out again for her spend before the walk.
We just did the same as yesterday really. I found it a bit more busier this morning though. It went relatively straight forward, apart from me needing to point out a couple of obsticles, telling her to “watch” as we passed them. This was just to make sure she didn’t get away with walking me into something, or brushing me against something.
It felt like there were loads of obsticles lol!!! I think there was!!
We headed back to lunch after this.
I just had chicken sandwiches with orrange juice. Two of the admin staff had popped down, just to see how we were getting on, and have a general chit chat. The woman who writes the facebook page was telling me what a wonderful response it is having, and how everyone seems to love it. That was great to hear. She was also telling me that the marketing department are going to use it, and that it has been sent to the chief executive of the whole organisation, as nobody had written a blog about class before, and they apparently liked what they saw!! I must have been doing something right!!! Lol. I only started doing it because I was writing on my personal blog anyway!! Who’d have thought that I would have got such a fantastic response!!!
I went up to my room with a little spring in my step after that lol. I just chilled until about half 2, as I wasn’t needed until then.
When I took her out for her last spend before we would go on our second walk, something rather strange happened. As I was going to get Ushi out of the run, I heard this strange humming noise. I just loosened the gate of the run, and as soon as i did that, I heard this really loud noise, which sounded like a plane or something. I then heard the noise of helicopter blades. I sort of hugged the gate of the run, and bent down a little. I didn’t fancy getting decapitated!!! Once it was gone, I just stood there for a while wondering what had just happened. Apparently, I found out from my instructors that there was a wedding and they must have hired a helicopter. It was rather funny afterwards!!
