Through my eyes Chapter 6....Not Bad After All


Meditation is not for everyone, but those who do it seem to have that certain kind of calm about them. I decided that this would be extremely helpful for Nina, especially while travelling. A good start to the busy day planned for her and Nixon.


Nina’s reply to my suggestion was a firm NO. ‘I couldn’t lie still for long and concentrate on nothing. Waste of time. I’m too busy when we travel’.


Persistent as I am, I did not relent. She finally gave in to my splendid idea.


The meditation commenced. Nixon sat beside me watching on. After much resistance, Nina finally surrendered. Nixon moved closer. Together, they shared the moment as one. The session ended and Nina opened her eyes to see Nixon sound asleep.


Great news! Nina now loves meditation and so does Nixon.


It has become a daily activity and will be especially beneficial while they are travelling.


And here they go together with Nixon leading the way.

Hi, my name is Karen.

I am part of Nina’s extended family. I am like the older sister she never had. I knew Nina’s first Seeing Eye Dog, Walter. I was a significant part of both their lives as I am with her current and second Guide Dog, Nixon. This is their ongoing story seen though my eyes, a person with no prior knowledge of Assistance Dogs but with a deep love of my furry babies. Talk soon.
