The Guide Dog Memos: Georgie

When Plans Go Astray—Roll With It!

Facebook Georgie & Becky 6.3.16So today I planned to publish the following post this morning but my youngest son came in for a surprise visit from out-of-state. He’s been gone for a couple of months doing commercial roofing in Texas and Arizona so I was thrilled to see him.

We scooped up my grandson, went to lunch and then hung out for a bit—not a bad way to spend a Friday afternoon. But I’m back home now, got my head in the game and want to share some wise words from, Georgie, today’s feature guide dog.

I am such a happy dog. I love living a balanced life of both work and play. When the harness comes out, I come running; excited to serve and help Becky. This work of serving and helping gives my life such meaning and purpose. When I am home and other times, the harness is off and I love to hike, run and play. Georgie (Guide to Becky Andrews)

    1. Hi Sarah, how are you?

      1. I am good – we had a busy weekend, so I am just getting back to the regular life. How are things there?

      2. Just rode through a torrential downpour but it’s all good. Each year when Pittsburgh has its arts festival it rains so it’s at least a good weather indicator 😉

      3. Probably a better indicator than the actual weatherpeople!

  8. Beautiful Georgie! How amazing guide and companion dogs are.

    1. Yes they are amazing. I’m so glad that there are many more labs and golden retrievers now as well. Not too long ago it seemed the only breed of guide dog was the shepherd. as a matter of fact I know of one school here in the states that only uses shepherds at the bequest of the person the school was named after

  9. He looks so happy.

  10. Sometimes when thing don’t go as planned it works out for the best. Have a great weekend.
