Yesterday at Obedience School, Geordie was introduced to wheelchairs and walkers so that he would be better prepared to meet folks in hospitals and the like. While he was fine with the wheelchair, he was afraid of the walker.
Today, there was a lady walking down the street, using a walker. I called Geordie over the the front door and pointed it out to him, saying there was nothing to be afraid of. We waved and went about our day. A couple of minutes later, a very worried nurse went running down the street. Here, the lady with the walker was a patient with Alzheimers from the nursing home down the street. I felt bad, like we should have realized and done something to help instead of just waving.
