Hi Alyssa.
I'm very sorry to hear of your troubles.  A broken hand must hurt like heck, 
besides being darned inconvenient.

The Seeing Eye has lots of smaller dogs.  My friends and I jokingly call it 
the Seeing Eye micro dog breeding program.  I like it, because I strongly 
prefer smaller dogs.  I have to squeeze my dogs in to a lot of small spaces.
Some of those little rascals can pull like a Mac truck, though.

Whether you choose a new school or stick with Leader, be sure to share your 
needs and concerns with them before you go to class, so they have the best 
chance of getting you a good match this time around.
