[nagdu] Going to Prison.

I don't know about entering a prison with a guide.  In my last job, I used 
to have a couple of inmates from the women's prison come and talk to the 
class participants.    The only issue was that it was very emotional for 
some of the inmates.  They may not have seen a dog for many years.  One lady 
had to give up her dogs when she was sentenced.  She didn't know if they 
found homes or what happened to them.  Seeing my dog reminded her of all 
that pain.  She was in tears for most of the 1.5 hours they were there.

I'm not saying to leave your guide behind, but just to  be aware that the 
presence of a dog could be an emotional issue.   It could be a positive 
thing or not, no way to know beforehand.  Of course none of this has 
anything what-so-ever to do with your legal rights in this situation.

I am wondering about the dog, whether he will be welcome there. I did take a
dog with me to the Shawnee County Jail in Topeka, Kansas, but since the
minister isn't sure I can bring the dog, she is asking someone. I need to be
