Today, I begin my training at the Oregon campus of Guide Dogs for the Blind. So far, I’ve met my fellow classmates, had orientation, a facility tour, eaten 2 yummy meals, and received my supplies for the dog I will receive tomorrow. This is a two week training program, and then I will return to Utah with my guide.
It’s interesting that I feel very at peace here- like it’s where I should be right now. I’ve been very nervous about this direction change in my life- mostly just because it’s change and unknown. But, being here, I’m getting a little excited. It poured rain today, and I am not looking forward to training on the rainy streets of Portland, but here goes the adventure! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s announcement of my new furry friend.
