D is for Dolly
My guide dog, Dolly, is delightful, dexterous, durable, devoted, darling, dynamic, demure, dear and knows how to play Duck, Duck, Goose. She is an Australian Shepherd, and her coat description is Blue Merle which is the combination of black, white, gray and brown. I got Dolly 5 1/2 years ago at Southeastern Guide Dogs (guidedogs.org) in Palmetto, FL. What a truly awesome experience that was! I spent the month, well almost the entire month, of August 2004 in training with her. The hurricanes were so numerous and nasty, we were sent home early. Anyway, Dolly knew over 40 commands so I had a lot to learn! In addition we celebrated her 2 yo birthday together down there. How about that for a brilliant dog! I could go on and on and on about Dolly..........just ask me a question, any question. She is one of the absolute best things in my life!
