To-day, I had a special visitor at Chris Green Stamps in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.... Kelly! (a.k.a. stamps4me)

Here are the two of us in the shop....

... and of course, the two of us with her faithful, very well behaved service dog, Dayton ...

As always, Kelly and I discussed a whole range of stamp issues. I helped her browse through some stamps, and had a few laughs.

It is always fun when we have have visitors to the shop from SOR.

A Service Dog gives a person with a disability independence. Never approach, distract or pet a working dog, especially when (s)he is in harness. Never be afraid to ask questions to the handler (parent).

re: Kelly Visits The Ottawa Shop!

I had a fabulous time. My 10 hour bus trip here was definitely worthwhile just for this afternoon. I truly enjoyed myself.

I came to Ottawa two years ago but we forgot to do a picture.

Wow David, my chair makes me look so tall and it wasn't even elevated.

Dayton quite enjoyed his afternoon nap and having time off from working - well ... most of the time! Lol

David,

I think Kelly just said you are short! Rolling On The Floor Laughing

I LOVE the photo of the service dog. What is his/her name?

re: Kelly Visits The Ottawa Shop!

Lars - this is Dayton, he's my third service dog. He is very smart. He is officially trained to open doors, pick things up, help me get up and move me and also to help me change my clothes and dry me off after a shower amongst many other skills. He taught himself to also be a hearing ear dog because I'm Deaf and he taught himself to be a guide dog because I'm legally blind.

He's an apricot standard poodle but Mummy only knows how to do one hair cut - "shear a sheep" so he's got a poodle brush cut! Lol

re: Kelly Visits The Ottawa Shop!

Two years ago, when Kelly came to the shop, Dayton was with her. Same thing this time around. He is quite the service dog... he just hangs around and looks after her. He finds a corner near her and settles right in.

Kelly's chair raises and lowers itself with the push of a button.... yoga in a wheelchair.

SOR is quite the club... especially when we get together.

I'm glad you and Dayton found each other!

Looks like a fun trip to David's shop (or is it a shoppe in the Great White North, eh?)

A yoga chair! That's a good one. I wouldn't have this chair if it weren't for many SOR members and others on TSF. It really changes your life when you can elevate your chair to get something out of a cupboard or a shelf instead of having to depend on others.

I remember the chair-raising event. Bobby Barnhardt coordinated it. One of many, many extraordinarily generous things that man did.

Thanks to all who participated.

Perhaps Kelly will also share photos from her trips to a post office and, gulp, the playground.

Always a smile and it occurs to me

To these two fellow Canucks - and all the rest of you...

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving & Happy Stamp Collecting.

Apricot Standard Poodle. Mummy knows only one hair cut "shear the sheep" so all my boys over the years have had one haircut "poodle brush cut."

Actually Emmett, my second Standard Poodle was also apricot and we discovered that he had about 1% of Airdale in him. I was allergic to him and couldn't figure out why since I hadn't been allergic to Cooper, my first Standard Poodle (black).

Dayton is 100% Standard Poodle with a poodle brush cut thanks to his beloved Mummy! LOL

re: Kelly Visits The Ottawa Shop!

Kelly,

it's lovely to see our children play.... even the ones with five doctorates.

I suspect that the aerdale quip was a play on Dayton's position relative to the ground... or perhaps that Dayton is both an important air base and home to company that built America's F111s. Or that you and he are playing above the Chips, which go well with Dales, or.....

I think i've had almost as much fun watching you from afar in 2-D as you did days ago in 3-D

re: Kelly Visits The Ottawa Shop!

One of my friends asked if I was embarrassed about being in my mid-40s and playing amongst kids that were 2 to 6. I said "Nope, just had to watch my language if I voiced anything out loud!" (My native language is ASL - American Sign Language as I'm Deaf).

I didn't care what it looked like - I was having fun! Even somehow managed to get that disc swing moving a few inches on my own. I was proud of myself. I figured out how to fo down that slide on my back by myself. It was great.
