HI Raven, I actually agree with you.  I think this is why some 
people believe that NFB is anti-dog.  I personally think that 
part of travel instruction for those with dogs should be using 
the dog rather than the cane.  I am all for good cane skills, but 
traveling with a dog is different than traveling with a cane.  I 
believe that it is demeaning for people who use dogs to never be 
allowed to use them for Center activities, too.  But it is 
doubtful that the Training Centers will change.  Which is too 
bad.  I believe that other things I learned at the Colorado 
Center were wonderful, and practical and helped me a lot.  I just 
wish that TSE could have sent someone to help me with Lamar when 
I was there, and that the Center would have allowed me to do some 
travel with him.  Perhaps he would not be retired now.    Debby 
and Nova
