"Have Dog, Will Travel--A Poet's Journey" by Stephen Kuusisto

Have Dog , Will Travel by Stephen Kuusisto is his true story about being born legally blind but trying to pass as sighted.  He rode a bike, went to public school and even read.  He became a professor, but when he got laid off at a young age, he had to do something.  That is how he came upon getting a guide dog and a whole new way of living!

I thought this book was pretty good.  I learned a lot about guide dog training and how people react to seeing someone with a guide dog.  It is a very short book, only 232 pages.  I loved Corky, his guide dog!

Teaser from page 43:  I wasn't sure what I thought about walking around with a "pretend" guide dog.  Somehow it seemed embarrassing, oddly performative, but my comfort wasn't as important as my safety, and ultimately getting the right dog.
