Jasmine Update

heard from jasmine’s GDMI earlier on. apparently during the last few weeks a lot of the support is withdrawn for the dogs when they’re working and they’re left to get on with it and make decisions as they have to do when working as a guide dog. jasmine has taken to this very well and is growing in confidence all the time. The GDMI has also done a blindfold walk with jasmine so she must trust her!

also, at the weekend there was apparently a huge fireworks party right next to where jasmine is staying. she slept through it which is great!

About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.

    So glad Jasmine is doing well!
    Hi Mel! I’m very glad to read here that Jasmine is doing so well in the training she gets before she starts working with you, working confidently with a blindfolded trainer, not worrying about fireworks, and so on. To me this is a good omen for your upcoming training with her: I hope I’m right, despite my total ignorance about being a guide dog owner, through never having had a guide dog myself. All the best to you and Jasmine during your upcoming training period together, and for your future partnership as well!

    what a great dog!
    Jasmin sounds like a really nice dog Mel, all the things you’ve mentioned here lead me to feel she is a very sound and confident dog and that she will make an excellent guide. I feel certain she is a really good match for you! Best of luck with the training, Tracy L.
