The Waiting Game

Guide dogs spend a lot of time waiting. Being still and being patient. It is sometimes a tough skill to learn. Guide dog pups have to learn NOT to be a puppy!

Waiting at the bank to get forms filled out.

Waiting at the post office

Waiting for the humans to finish eating and talking

Waiting for the humans to just quit chatting and move along

Waiting at the doctors office for an eye exam. (This was a routine exam requested by the school. His eyes are perfect!)

Waiting for the car to be ready

Waiting for shoppers

Just Waiting for something! Anything!

Donnie, for the most part, has been handling the Waiting Game remarkably well. Sometimes not so well. But he’s learning.
