I'm wondering if anyone out there has a dog (assistance or otherwise) and if so, how you cope with bad days. I'm dithering over sending in my final application for a vision-guide dog because I'm not sure how I'll manage, and I'm sure the school will ask me how I expect to meet the dog's needs even when I'm in rough shape. Does anyone have any ideas? I do have a yard, and it's sort of fenced, but it's not really possible to just leave a guide dog to his or her own devices. My guys have said they're willing to help, but for at very least the first year I'll need to be the one who meets the dog's needs (toileting and exercise and grooming). Any thoughts would be appreciated.
