Find Xiaohong’s, Find Home

Hi, it is Sophia again.

Almost every day, Banjo and I walk to and from one of my best friend’s house. Her name is Xiaohong. She lives about 3 blocks from my house. We love lots of the same things, like swimming, ice cream and dogs!

Our neighborhood doesn’t have sidewalks, so Banjo takes me on the left side of the street when we go to her house. He knows the way there—all I have to say is “Find Xiaohong’s” and he goes! Now Banjo goes around any parked cars without stopping, and then goes right back to the curb.

When I am ready to come home, I tell Banjo “Find home.” He takes me home really fast! Sometimes he whines a little if he sees another dog, but usually he is very good.

My mom says the other night I started skipping while Banjo was walking me home. She says he paused and looked up at me. He saw that I was fine and we kept right on moving. My mom thinks OccuPaws dogs are amazing. I think so, too.

It is so good to hear how a working guide dog is helping you. It really helps to motivate me to work hard and do my very best. I want to be a guide dog, too! From Alice and her mom, Catherine
