Give me your sadness. I will take it, as much as you need. If it kills us both, so be it. I am here.

Journey Update

Now I am close(r) to moving and getting my own dog to train, I have been contacting organisations that could help – since I AM planning to owner-train my assistance dog, but would like to have ‘backing’, as I put it, from an organisation for things like advice, training help, constructive criticism, and other things that would ensure quality of training and working. I have had mostly quite positive responses from a few of the organisations and have said that I will contact them again when I am closer to getting my dog.

Something I haven’t been thinking too much about (partly because I’m trying not to get too hopeful about things) is that I will be moving and that includes moving away from Flo, who I’ll be leaving here with my mum because of several reasons, and Charlie and Tina, and Norbi. Of course I’ll be back quite a lot I imagine, so it’s not like I’m leaving forever, but with Charlie and Flo especially, they have helped me so much to even survive to get to here, and I literally owe them my life. But like I said, I will be back, but it will be weird to not see Flo every day, not take Charlie for a run in the fields.

But one thing at a time. Let’s hope this works out, because despite trying not to, I already have way too much hope for this. But like mum AND my recovery co-ordinator put it, maybe I’ve had enough shit in my life and I’m finally getting what I deserve. We’ll see.


Changes + A New Recruit!

Just a short post to say that all the changes to this blog are because it’s finally going to be in use again! I have another candidate for my assistance dog, a lovely chocolate lab called Charlie who is 2 years old; he lives in the same close as me and his owner has given me free reign to train him to help me and then work with me out and about, giving me a degree of independence. We’ve barely known each other a week but the situation looks hopeful right now; Charlie is a bit hyper but very eager to please and learn, and he knows some things already! I’m looking forward to more adventures with him and I hope this will work out as him working with me in the end.
