Blind people with guid dogs

Tuesday 09th July 2019 16:09 EDT

I don’t have any personal experience or knowledge about guide dogs but I do know that they are trained from very young age and for the ‘master’ they are inseparable.  I am very disappointed that all kinds of places, taxis, religious places have some sort of objection. 

Some offer assistance from volunteer to take them round, if allowed in the first place, whilst the guide dog is looked after somewhere else.  This is just like saying to a mother, you stay outside, we will take your child round.

We have Hindu Dieties riding a lion, we rever Ghai-mata, monkeys are allowed free reign in temples in India etc yet we discriminate to against blind people with guide dogs. 

Stop making excuses!
