[nfbmi-talk] To Larry re: guide dogs stories.

Calli and Q are a matched guide dog and person pair. He performs all the normal functions of a guide dog, but because he goes to school with her he actually was trained for that. He also knows how to jump out the back of a bus for emergency bus evacuation and he learned to pull a wheelchair for the two weeks she was in Oneidas year. 

MIRA in Quebec trains the dogs and students for MIRA USA. Over 20 years ago they did the psychological testing to figure out what ages, skills and maturity markers youth needed to have to be able to use a guide dog properly. They have never had an accident or a pair refusal. They use Bernese Mtn Dogs, Labs, and St Pierre's, a breed originally from crossing Labs and Bernese. 

Calli is the first in MI and all the states that border MI to get a guide dog, in 2012. Q is very handsome black Lab. 

I may not be perfectly wise, perfectly witty, or perfectly wonderful, but I am always perfectly me. Anon.

When she was 14 she spent 5 weeks on the hospital with a brain bleed. Q visited every day and then stayed at night too when she was allowed to get out of bed after the 4th week. He learned to pull wheelchairs, learned to walk more slowly as she relearned to walk and napped on the bed with her when she was exhausted. When Q was with her, her vital signs improved.
