I think Hugger may be rethinking her job.
We’re in North Carolina working on groundwater wells in the middle of a heat wave. Not what she expected when she started guide dog school!
There are pricker bushes and small cactus around, so everyone, including Hugger, must wear shoes at some of the sites. Hugger collapses like a camel, folding her front legs under her, when she gets to her bed, and grimaces when I make her start working (and walking) again!
Its hot! The heat index was 116 this afternoon. So we’ve been getting up between 4:30 and 5:00am and start work early, while its still somewhat cool.
She’s certainly experiencing a wider range of environments than she expected. But, she always has a nice bed and good friends to hang with.
