Today marks one week before the Guide Dogs award ceremony. Emails about articles have come in. As a guide dog owner, I see myself as an ambassador for guide dogs, as a volunteer I see myself as someone who is able to raise awareness of what a guide dog does, including all the bits they don’t tell you about in training.
So, when the email came in from my local mobility office about taking part in a radio interview, I bit back the nerves and agreed.
That was a few days ago….. Today I woke with a stinking cold and an incredibly nervous tummy.
Today, me and Vicky went along to the studios of BBC Solent in Southamptom. Today I took part in my first ever live interview on Radio……
And it was exhilarating !!
I had the support of Katie from the Southampton guide dog team.
Here it is, the interview.
