When we took Dot and Dash to the Wagging Tail Dog Park later in the day, we saw two blind people get off a Handi-Ride bus and bring their service dogs to the dog park. When the couple took the special harnesses off the service dogs and replaced them with regular dog leashes, the two dogs immediately started acting like all the other dogs. They sniffed in the bushes, tugged on the leashes and I was afraid they might run off and leave the blind people. They never did though. I have to admire the couple for giving their service dogs a chance to act like regular dogs for a little while. I don't know where they found the nerve to do this however. All the dogs at the dog park were nice today, but some days they can get pretty rowdy.
When we got home from the dog park, I worked on a practice video, using the laptop editing software I'll be using in Houston. I thought the little video exercise would be a piece of cake, but I discovered all sorts of potential problems instead. Uploads took longer than I though. Putting together a decent music track from the small library of stock music clips I loaded on the laptop took longer than I thought too. I might have to travel with a much larger music library. At least adding graphics and logos worked as planned. I though I'd be able to get the whole segment cut and encoded in less than an hour, but it took me twice as long. I'll repeat the exercise tomorrow and see if I can come up with a smoother way of doing things.
