A special student in my Friday / Saturday class

In my weekend class the past few weeks, I’ve had two very special students. This beautiful Lab is a full-time guide dog, and she comes to class with her owner who is blind. For privacy reasons, I won’t list out their names.

Here she is sitting nice and tall for a photo. It was raining that day, so she had a rain coat on.

Below is her usual in-class position. She snaps into position as soon as her owner prepares to stand up.

Guide dogs aren’t very common in Taiwan yet, and there are only as few as 28 licensed guide dogs in Taiwan, according to the Taiwan Guide Dog Association.

It was such an encouragement to meet the pair of them. To be honest, after being sick and in recovery most the summer, I’ve been trying to pull my life together; I struggle sometimes, not knowing what’s next. Each doctor appointment feels like an unset timebomb. But compared to this special student, my issues sure are minor.
