Day 335: Dog Days, Part II

Still learning restraint

The guide dog on my morning commute was a model of restraint. She was like a big gold smiling statue of a lab. Miraculously, I saw another guide dog in the afternoon! This one was still in training. He was out with his foster father and a young kid, learning how to calmly take the subway. Frankly, I'm not entirely sure this dog's going to make the cut. In the time that I watched him, he flopped on the subway platform and demanded a belly rub, investigated a lot of food detritus, and got his head stuck up the back of a woman's long raincoat.

It was adorable.
