Follow-up visit


Selfie style pic of Makiko (black Labrador) laying on Jessica (Caucasian woman) who is wearing a black tshirt with white writing. Makiko is cuddled against Jessica's chest resting, with her eyes closing as she rests. One of her purple toys is sitting on the couch beneath her.

Makiko and I had a great day! Michelle, an instructor and Field Rep, from Guide Dogs for The Blind came out as she was making the rounds doing evaluations on all the teams. Makiko and I did great! Michelle gave us a few tips on different tricky situations. I was so proud of Makiko and she was so proud of herself. We played and cuddled so much after. She is now happily laying on me and it melts my heart so. This precious girl keeps my heart and body going each and every day. Love her! 

I knew Makiko and I were doing excellent but it still makes me a little nervous when they come out. It’s always great to hear how our working relationship is still top notch!

Guide Dogs for The Blind is one of the only schools that has this amazing follow-up program. Most schools do not do yearly follow ups and emergent visits when teams have problems. It makes me so grateful I chose Guide Dogs for The Blind and Guide Dogs for The Blind chose me!

Jessica N and Makiko

Jessica is a proud Texan. She graduated in 2014 with her Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling and is now employed. She is visually impaired and has a retinal disease, Retinitis Pigmentosa. Originally Jessica started blogging about everything from being diagnosed with the disease to where she is now, almost 9 years later. Then, Jessica went to Guide Dogs for the Blind and was blessed with Makiko, her new guide dog. Now, her blog "The Way Eye See The World" is about everything related to visual impairments, including guide dogs.
