[nagdu] What one wants

I think it's fine to not have any big wants.  Basically, I want a guide dog 
who actually guides me, one who helps me instead of hurts me, one who 
enhances my mobility.  Without that, anything else is irrelevant.  One would 
think that one could always count on that basic, but clearly it ain't 
necessarily so.
So I try to pick the program that I think has the very best chance of giving 
me that essential, and then, if I think there's more than one that fits the 
bill, look at the would-be-nice list. But figuring out which program gives 
me the best chance of a good dog is not as easy as one would think it should 
To follow Rebecca's analogy, my house has to keep me warm and dry, and not 
fall down around me.  Then we can talk about bathrooms, location, etc.
