|As a blind person who has had to overcome many challenges in her life, I find it slightly disheartening that some of you think this will not work. This just illustrates how little compassion some people have for the disabled. Every blind/disabled human/animal deserves a chance to succeed. In 2 weeks, I will be performing in a fund raising gala for an organization called Cherish. They work to integrate developmentally delayed children into society. I just spoke at the press conference this morning to appeal for donations. One thing that I stressed was that parents should not give up on their children, and neither should the world. I don't see how dogs are different.
Guest, hats off to you and your family for being so kind and compassionate and so willing to take on this challenge. This will be a great learning experience for your entire family, especially your daughter. By learning to communicate with a disabled pet, it will help her communicate with disabled people. Please disregard everyone who says it won't work. In case some people are as dumb as a rock and have not heard of Helen Keller, she was both blind and deaf and she became a very successful woman. Look her up if you haven't heard of her.
Guest, if you have any questions about blindness, please feel free to pmail me.
