Raising Cane

Today I got the brilliant idea to attempt the Kodiak route without using a cane for support. (The Kodiak route is a route in my hometown to a coffee shop. It was the route I used on my home interview/evaluation before I was accepted to receive Julio. It's also the only route I'm currently able to access without putting my life in danger in this town). About halfway through, I decided that I'm still not ready to get rid of the cane. Luckily, I'd anticipated that as a possibility, and Mom was right behind me with the cane.

From a mobility standpoint, the route went well. I've hardly worked it at all in recent memory, and I'm pretty proud of the puppy and I for how we did. It would help if I didn't need the cane, since Julio and I are having some issues with control. It seems he knows I don't have a hand free to correct him, and is taking advantage of it. I may need to call my Guide Dogs Field Manager and ask her about this. Definitely an area where blindness and pain intersect.

This sounds like the equivalent of being called to the Principal's Office for bad conduct. Tell Pup he's in trouble and that you won't tolerate his bad behavior!
