In honor of white cane day being on October 15th: I decided to interview my cane.
1 Welcome, Meghan tell me a little about yourself?
I’m a Seeing Eye Cane and my name is Meghan. You can also call me Meg, or Cane, but never Stick! To me being called stick just sounds disgusting and that’s just not what I am! I’m only a few months old, but that doesn’t mean I don’t move as fast as Chelsey’s previous canes, ′Fred and George′.
2 What’s your favorite part about working with me?
I get to be on camera and I love that we can go anywhere, also that I help people notice you more.
3 What’s your favorite place we’ve gone so far and where would you like to go?
I loved going to the pumpkin patch and seeing all the animals. I would really love to go skate boarding.
4 What do you think about the fact that you’re colorful?
I love it! It means I’m more noticeable and little kids love me. I think we cane’s should be able to be whatever color our humans’ want’, ′not just the traditional white′, because everyone is different and our inside’s should match our outside’s.
And there you have it strate from a cane herself! You will be seeing more of Meg because I wrote a book about her. It’s going to be called “Meghan the Seeing Eye Cane,” But we aren’t sure of the release date yet.
