Sightless in Seattle
by Claire Anderson
3 stars - good story, so so writing
ALR Green - Happy dogs doing good work
Claire Anderson gives us some wonderful anecdotes about guide dog boot camp and the challenges of being legally blind. However the writing is painfully terse and one only gets glimpses of what I imagine are fascinating stories.
I particularly liked her recitation of a "day in the life" of living with a guide dog. Made me feel a bit abashed that I don't brush Dexter often enough and certainly am lacking when it comes to brushing his teeth.
I totally see a TV series here. So much so that I sent the author an email encouraging her to look into it.
Oh, and I also asked her to solve for me the mystery of poop collection. While she did share how poop depositing in a controlled fashion is achieved, well, inquiring minds want to know.
