New guide dog – An expensive commodity

Many would think that I’m referring to dog bed, food, toys, bowls, etc. yes there are all those things but there is more.

A few weeks ago I bought some winter boots. they’re great but with fairly high heels. whilst I can happily walk with an older dog in high heels, a young inexperienced dog requires its owner to walk faster and I wouldn’t want to risk tripping and compromising its confidence. So a new pair of winter shoes for work have been purchased today.

Then there’s my every day bag. At the moment I’m carrying around a handbag which I carry over my arm or in my hand. I may well need my right hand free a lot more for the new dog, so off I go to buy a shoulder bag in winter colours!

I won’t lie, its quite fun going off for shoes and bag, and at least I have an excuse!

    Good to be practical
    Hi Mel! Sorry to hear that you’ve got to buy new winter boots and a new handbag, not long after you’d already bought some boots, but your reasons for doing so are very sensible: expensive these items pmay perhaps be, but you’re right to get them for practical reasons.
