Description

Annie was my second Guide Dog. When I returned to school to train with her, I had many doubts and concerns. I even hesitated about having another dog because to lose Suzie, my first Guide, was catastrophic. I knew that dogs had a short life, but some how my mind tricked me to believe that she would live around twenty five years just because we loved each other and I took good care of her. When Suzie passed away my sorrow reached a magnitude impossible for me to manage, and during several months the darkest night took over my life. Due to an important spiritual experience that I had some days after my beloved dog left, I was sure that I wanted another dog to enter my life. However, I didn't know how to open the door to a new love. In this state of mind I returned to school and completed the training between tears and smiles. Although Annie and I bonded soon, some part of me resisted connecting with her at a deep level, and this slowed down the process to develop the profound connection that must exist between two living beings in order to become a team, especially if they are a human and a guide dog. I sincerely regret if my resistance caused Annie any problem. Each dog is an individual and as such, unique and distinctive to others. This difference is still more notable if we compare two dogs from different breeds. Suzie was a German Shepherd and Annie a Labrador and Golden Retriever mix. I found difficult to deal with this change, but I prayed, asking God to help me. Little by little I allowed my sweet puppy to teach me that love comes in different sizes, colors and shapes, and with Suzie in my heart, Annie and I continued our adventure through the multiple avenues of life. Let's read what Annie has to say, as she is the real author of this book. I hope these pages can help improve the relationship between humans and dogs, and be a solace for many people that cry the loss of a pet.show more
