with Terra, My Seeing-Eye Dog
Majadas from Spain
seeing eye dog is very special. One good thing
about having a dog is that you can go anywhere in
the city safely.
have a baby boy, so another good thing is
my dog watches out for him, too.
live in Barcelona, Spain. It's a big city, and
there are many cars, but my dog Terra goes to work
with me every morning and doesn't let me walk in
the street and get hit by a car. Terra also guides
me safely in "el metro" (the subway).
have a baby boy, so another good thing is my dog
watches out for him, too. I can put the baby in his
stroller, and Terra makes sure we are both okay. I
have had Terra for ten years, so she is never
jealous when the baby gets attention.
likes to play, too. When we are ready to go out, I
hold the harness high over my head, and she leaps
up into it. But when the harness is on, she stops
playing. She knows she has a job to do.
the past, people in Spain had to get their seeing
eye dogs from the United States. It was not easy
because there weren't enough dogs. People had to
wait several years.
seeing eye dog is very special.
there is a school in Madrid that trains seeing-eye
dogs, so it is easier and faster to get
a dog is work. You have to feed it and bathe it,
but I am happy to do this because Terra is a very
special friend and helper.
