Performance Enhancing Drugs for Guide Dogs!

With all these baseball players names being leaked about testing positive for performance enhancing drugs, it got me thinking, do they make performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) for Guide Dogs, and if so, what do they do? Would they make Nash walk faster, would they increase his speed crossing intersections, would they allow him to take himself out to the bathroom, and then let himself back into the apartment? Would they allow him to give himself a belly rub while I am trying to watch a movie? Would they allow him to put his harness and leash on before we leave? I know some of these sound pretty good, but like baseball, I am a purist, and until they legalize performance enhancing drugs for guide dogs, I will stick to the old school rules, so the playing field for all guide dog handlers have a level playing field. What can I say, I am in a silly mood. What a shocker to, David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez used PEDs. No, you mean it just wasn’t Yankees doing it? I told my friends back when all the Yankees were being dragged through the mud, if you want the truth behing this, and Congress is going to be involved, then they should subponea every trainer for every team. And what the hell is Congress doing investigating baseball anyway? I mean, do they not have anything more important to spend their time on, and more importantly, our tax dollars on? Glad to see Congress had all that money to waste. At least someone has some dispensible income.

Just got done with a photo shoot for an article that will be appearing in the Daily News about Nash, me, Guiding Eyes for the Blind, and the Animal Medical Center. Not to worry, no speedo shots of me. I did an interview yesterday, and if you have been reading this blog, then you know about Nash and me. You should know about Guiding Eyes for the Blind, as they were the amazing Guide Dog School that connected Nash and me. Their trainers, staff, and volunteers, are some of the most dedicated and kindest people that I have ever met, and I have met a lot of people. Maybe one slow day I will do a list of the top assholes I have met, the list would be long. HA! The Animal Medical Center is another very impressive organization, as they treat guide dogs for free. For those of you who have never had the pleasure of going to see a vet, let me just tell you that the animals medical care is better than people’s. First off, you can tell how much the vet cares about each animal. You definitely can’t say that for every doctor. Second, they get you in and out early, or on time. Lately, my doctor has been better, and maybe I can’t really compare these as we people do have some weird stuff that happens to us and can cause massive dealys at the doc’s office. Finally, they treat guide dogs for free at the AMC in NYC. It is pretty amazing that Nash has better and cheaper medical care than I have. Then again, he seems more likeable than me, and definitely not as tempermental.

    I agree with you completely about the PEDs. What about those swimming “super suits!?” What ever happened to people just doing their best w/o artificial interventions?

    Wow! You and Nash are sure popular with the media. When do you expect the article to be published in the Daily News?

    Yes, the media coverage has been interesting. Not sure when it will be published, or when the Today Show will air, but will let you know. I am not egocentric, so hopefully all the exposure will not go to Nash’s head. The camera men have been amazed how natural and relaxed Nash is in front of the camera. He even licked my face today when we did a face to face shot, pretty funny.

    Nash doesn’t need PED’s…He is definitely Super Dog. Thanks to all your love and care (& to Lorraine and Richard’s dog raising skills….and to think he was a first dog)!!!
