I am an awful guide dog handler. I had brownies somewhere in this room and I can't find them. I should have put them up higher. I bet Julio ate them, bag and all. But the weird thing is he's not showing signs of being sick at all. But I can't believe how stupid I can be. I know better than to leave food out where he can get it. I should have had Mom set the bag on the dresser which is too high for puppies to get to, not the desk where he can probably get them. I'm kicking myself with the good foot. This is so frustrating. If I hadn't grown up around dogs and didn't know so many other handlers, I could see this being an okay mistake.

To make things worse, I accidentally missed lunch and the soup I bot at the co-op was nasty, like eating water with paper in it. So I'm probably over hungry which is contributing to this. I was doing so well earlier, but now I'm too upset to think straight.

Alexis and I are sending you hugs. This is a mistake every dog user has made at some point. Don't be too hard on yourself. [hugs]

I definitely appreciate the hugs! I'm just really glad the brownies didn't make him seriously sick!

Congratulations, Nickie! You're human. I can't think of anyone I know, myself included, who hasn't done something like that. I remember the time I left half a pizza and buffalo wings unguarded on the table for only a few minutes, and returned only to find the empty box on the floor. It happens, and it certainly doesn't make you any less of a guide dog handler. It makes you human.

You can't be sure he ate them, and kicking yourself does no good after the fact. We all make mistakes no matter our experience level. Don't sweat the small stuff...this too shall pass. *hugs*

Next time could you leave them out of the bag.

Re: Frustrating
Not unless you start putting your turds in a bag for me before I pick them up.
