I'm Molly, a typical sushi, makeup, and fashion loving millennial girl who just so happens to be blind! I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa at just 4 years old and began public speaking at age 5. I started just doing motivational speaking, but now I make videos and even model! Even though I can’t see, I know that there are bright spots in everything we face. Let’s find them together. 💕

  • My daughter's psychiatric service dog has been getting rusty because of pandemic restrictions too. He is only 2 years old, and was just beginning to work before, so he is young enough to work on correcting issues. I know it is tough having to retire Gallop, but it's great to hear that you may be able to get your next dog earlier than expected. You help a lot of people with your videos. Thank you for sharing

  • Molly Bernese are great dogs but just consider they shed a LOT! I have had 2 Greater Swiss Mountain dogs which is the size larger than Bernese although they look identical. There are 4 sizes in the Sennehund group that they belong to. The Bernese is second largest. Outside of size they appear identical and if hair and shedding will be an issue for you it might be best to reconsider. My dog is not a service dog although he would have made an excellent one I think , the breed just seems to have those traits naturally. I hope you find a wonderful dog and Gallop transition goes easily.

  • I have had this problem with my mobility service dog. He is acting depressed whenever anyone leaves the house and he’s not going. Because of my medical problems I’m not leaving the house except for doctors appointments. Sasuke is also 8 y/o too so in the age range to retire anyway. I have applied to 3 companies but the waitlists are looong!! Sasuke is acting more like a pet too.

I know how hard this is, because I just went through it. I graduated with my fifth dog on March 14 of this year. Can we say Covid dog? I hope you get a dog very very soon, because I know how hard it is to have to use a cane.

  • I think I don’t have to mention the heavy heart I have for Mollys situation, it’s obviously awful... But what’s really killing me is how Gallop must feel when it’s time. As much as he’s a trained guide dog, he’s still a dog. And as much as I understand, it feels like betrayal when their actual owners leave them. Obviously it’s what needs to happen, I’m not judging that by any means but it just sucks so so so bad that you can’t just kneel down to explain it all to him. He won’t understand why he’s being without Molly from a certain point on, he’s gonna be so emotionally confused... I hate that so much, I can’t handle it at all 😭 And as if the entire situation wasn’t bad enough, Molly has to carry that burden too. I am so incredibly sorry for all they have to go through with this...

Maybe you talked about this topic before and you can refere me to that video? Or if you haven't maybe you can explain in a video?? I want you to know that i think you're awesome and i like your honesty so much.. The way you did your video on how you're feeling at the moment was so heartbreaking but uplifting at the same time. I deal with mental health alot due to chronic illness and i'm in my bedroom alot because of pain..I struggle alot. You made me feel less alone for sure. I'm sorry this message is way longer that i intended but i want you to know you're not alone and i think about you from Holland and i wish you all the best. all my love from Juliette

  • Do you think guide dog schools that train guide dogs specifically will adjust their curriculum to match what's the social distancing rules that are up right now? I know this isn't necessarily going to last forever but what if it does? what if our country decides that we don't need to go back to the original ways, that we can stay in the social distancing rules? Or do you think they will start adding that as a secondary curriculum for when times like this have to happen? I think it might be a good idea to start training them in that way.

  • I wish you wouldn't call your former dog by her name. Gy*sy is a racist slur against Romani people (which I am). It's basically the same as naming your dog the n word.

    PeachPeachVor 19 Tage
    • Peach I agree. It is not okay to say a racist slur. I am not justifying racism. Just stating the facts. The rare time that she has to talk about her first guide dog. She will still say the name as people will ask for the name of the dog. Not saying I agree with it but it is her choice. I am not disagreeing with you.

      Dan SgambelluriDan SgambelluriVor 19 Tage
    • @Dan Sgambelluri I’m aware of all of that. It still doesn’t make it okay to say a racist slur. Ever. Under any circumstances. Stop justifying racism. Molly could simply say “My first guide dog.” or something like that. Or just call the dog G or ANYTHING that isn’t racist? If that dog’s name had been the N word, or a slur against Asian people, or some other racist slur, Molly would have been cancelled immediately. People need to give a damn about us too. And for the record, naming a dog a slur after a band is still racist. That band is made of people who are Spanish Roma descendants (although they are French in nationality). THEY are allowed to say that slur. Gadja (non-Roma) are not.

      PeachPeachVor 19 Tage
    • Peach The dog was named by Mira who are Québécois French 15 years ago. It was named after the band The Gipsy Kings. She is not going to change the name when she has to talk about her. Which is not a lot. I understand that the vast majority of people don’t know the Roma people exist and it is unfortunate.

      Dan SgambelluriDan SgambelluriVor 19 Tage
    • @Dan Sgambelluri I know the dog has passed. Which is really sad, and I’m sorry for Molly’s pain. That does NOT excuse ever saying the slur. I like Molly and I have a lot of respect for her. Hopefully at some point someone will be able to educate her about this. Unfortunately, that slur is pretty commonly used as a name for pets and even children. An embarrassing amount of people don’t even know the Roma are real people, so they can’t possibly care about the racism we’re subject to.

      PeachPeachVor 19 Tage
    • Her dog is dead and has been dead for a few years. She rarely talks about the dog unless it is needed. I know it is a slur to the Roma people. I can ask during a live stream if she knows about it and say a lot of people are upset about it.
