Thank you.  I also want to add that now I enjoy going for walks 
just for the pleasure of walking.  And now, with GPS, I can walk 
not necessarily knowing where I'm going, just walk for the 
pleasure of the movement, Neena guiding me and being my 
companion, and then I can come back home, feeling tired in that 
good way that you feel after doing something fun.  So I thank God 
for my Neena, even when she does things that annoy me.  (Smile).  
What she offers me is freedom in a way I never have felt with a 
cane.  For those who do feel that freedom using a cane, great! Go 
for it.  But please don't put those of us who don't feel that 
freedom, down.  We have a right to our choice as much as you do.  
(And I know I'm preaching to the choir on this list, but I really 
really hate the snide remarks some ardent cane users have spouted 
at me and others who choose to travel with dogs instead of canes.    
Peace,    Debby and Neena
