I’m in a choir called Shout Sister Choir. So one night we were doing a show and sometimes my lovely Noah sits between my feet and sometimes he lays down, either is fine with me since he’s a good boy. We had this one song called ‘Lay Down” hahahha, the first few lines of the song are of course “lay down” So before we started the song my Noah was sitting up and nice and proud in his black shirt and we began to sing, *snickers* “lay down, lay down, lay it all down” You guessed it, the command lay down and over 100 people singing it Noah let out a loud groan as to say “alright already, I’ll lay down” and he plopped on the ground. Talk about funny. All of us had a hard time trying not to laugh and sing at the same time. From that moment forward we couldn’t sing that song without laughing at Noah first.
May story 2:
Ok, here’s another Noah story. This one happened when we were actually still in training. We were walking down a busy downtown street, loads of people, tables, chairs and all those lovely obstacles that jump out at you in downtown areas *chuckles* Noah and I get about halfway down the sidewalk when he slams on the breaks. I put my foot out to see what’s up and see nothing, hold my hand out, nothing. Reach down check my dog and he’s looking off to the side. I’m now like completely puzzled and tell him to hup hup. Noah says nope, not moving. He then shakes himself and then looks back off to the side..not happy with whatever it is and shakes himself again even harder, then looks back off to the side. By this time my instructor has reached me and is laughing his head off and tells me what Noah is looking at. We came across a store front that had a window that reflected your reflection back at you like a mirror. I couldn’t help but to laugh and during this Noah gives one last big shake, looks off to the side and is finally happy with his appearance and off we go, bouncing down the street as nothing is wrong, lol. After that day he earned the name Prince Noah!
Janey is my first Seeing Eye dog. I was going to take a taxi a short ways because the place I needed was too far off the bus line to walk. The cab pulled up, and I told Janey inside, thinking she would put her nose to the door like in training. I heard a loud thud and felt the harness rise into the air, so I reached up to find her hanging half way through the cab’s opened window.
Eve and I have been together since February. I have volumes I can write on her! this past Sunday, I led the children at church in a song. I usually don’t help with the music, but they needed some help that day. So, as I was leaving the music, all the little girls in my class were laughing. I couldn’t figure out what they were laughing at. I kept giving them the luck, but they kept giggling. Afterwords, I sat down by them and ask them what was so funny. They said that Eve saw a large and on the floor. She kept watching it, then she placed her paw on top of it. The and started crawling away from under her paw. Eve kept watching the aunt and she placed her paw back on top of it. Again, the aunt crawled away from under her paw. This kept happening until it got out of her reach. No wonder none of the kids were singing! Eve was entertaining them!
K story 2:
This is a story about my first guide dog named Riley. My husband and I were walking down an aisle at the grocery store. My husband was looking at the shelves to the right, never really noticing what was happening on our left. Suddenly, there was a small shriek and a woman was sprawled on the floor in front of us. Apparently, she had been bent over looking at something on the bottom shelf. Well, Riley reacted as dogs do and since there was a butt right in his face, he decided to sniff it. He totally goosed her
