Back to AZ--Where we had been
Now I and Nicky left from others,
then fly to Tucson, where we were in 1999-2000.
In this page, there are some links to our first web site(but written in
and some memories of our passed days.
Woo, a very gorgeous car to take us to the airport.
...We had to be careful about dog shed and spit!
But see, my good boy was in usual manner.
He knows what to do, same to ride any car.
I guess, Japanese hotels would not allow persons with dogs to ride this
kind gorgeous car,
they would say, "Sorry, but your dog's smell and shedding would be
left in the car and unconfort ohters."
Our second home town!
The hotel was only 2 blocks from the apartment we had been in.
Between our local supermarket and pet shop. Easy to get stuff for both
I and Nicky.
At the super market, we met a girl who loves dogs.
In 1996, I stayed at same hotel, even the room was same.
It was my first abroad trip and first visit to Tucson,
and I reached Top Dog and met Stew Nordenson.
The purpose of my first 4 weeks visit to the states, was learning more
about service dogs to find(or train) my own service dog.
The dream has came true.
This time I 'm with Nicky!
The next supermarket was the place where we had passed public access test.
(ADI Public Access Test--In English)
When waiting the bus...
Here comes the Van Tran, that I and Nicky used so often.
The wheelchair van,
maneged by city.
(Pic on right was took in 1999,
Nicky and I loading the van)
It was availlable from morning to night, driver knew well how to handle
unlike wheelchair van service in Japan.
(The Japanese service is poor, only three vans in our city in which 400,000
people are living!
The service is very limited, and often has trouble.)
Anyway, wheelchair van service is necessary for me with both visually and
mobility impared to get around.
Now it remembers me many memories here.
Took the bus "34", which goes on Craycroft,
Nicky was out of the aisle and didn't bother anyone.
His first bus ride was like this, he became much better.
Nicky, do you remember?
