urbsters "Everything is cool when you're part of a team" || In the past week: Griff has hiked up and down a rocky mountain, walked on snow wearing his booties, and now strolling on the beach. Proud of this dude! Can't thank @mvanworth enough for raising such a wonderful pup who's always down for anything. (= #5J99 #guidedogsfortheblind #GDB 2mon

urbsters Guide work is like ballroom dancing || Working with a guide has a lot to do with body positioning and foot work, especially on turns. As a new handler, I practiced this every night in my dorm room while I was at GDB. Yes, I danced in my room every night. Ha, I can finally admit this! Next time I'm part of group discussion in class, I might have to break it down with my 1, 2 step. :p #guidedogsfortheblind 2mon

urbsters #InternationalGuideDogDay || One of many reasons why I love having a guide is I get to satisfy my snickers craving at night by trekking our way to a local Walgreens. :D Simple but yet something I never would have done before Griff. #5J99 #guidedogsfortheblind #GDB 3mon
