Good morning campbellsworld visitors!
Campbell and I back again to tell you of our adventures while walking off what was for me, too much breakfast.
This morning, I woke up extremely hungry, and normal breakfast food just did not appeal to me.
Since I do not have a clock in my stomach, unlike Campbell my big black Labrador who always knows when it is Tummy O’clock, I decided to eat a small pot-pie.
Once I ate it, drank a small glass of milk, and had my morning’s coffee fix, I felt too full.
Well, what to do?
I thought about it, and after seeing rain coming yet again for the afternoon in the morning’s weather report, I harnessed up my pup and off for a good walk we did go.
I am to start receiving O&M services on Friday to learn the neighborhood, where mass transit bus stops are, shops and the like, and since we moved in I’ve been working with Campbell teaching him how to walk away from the house and find it again.
We’ve only been here since Feb. 9 and we’re only a few blocks from our old house, and I do not want him to get confused and take us back to the old place.
So, I started out a week or so ago, just cane traveling a little way away and going back tapping the gate and cheering, “YAY! Good Boy! Campbell’s House!”
Shaking my keys and making sure he was paying attention.
This morning, I took it up a notch.
I put him into his harness, and we walked all the way to the end of the long block, and back to the house.
First time he missed it because he was having too much fun walking at top-speed and working, so we ended up all the way passed.
After I caught my breath, I turned us around, found it with my cane, and back to the gate, loud tap, “Inside Campbell’s House! YAY!”
Turned us around and back to the other end we went again.
We did this back and forth, back and forth for 30 minutes before coming in for a stretch and cool down.
I feel way better, broke a great sweat, got my blood pumping, and managed to kill two birds with one stone.
I have to say, that I am proud of the fact that I am learning to do something about how eating too much makes me feel rather than sitting round feeling badly about it.
What I ate really was not all that much, it was just too heavy for the morning.
It, however gave me energy to get out and train my dog, so that I don’t have to waste my instructor’s time showing us the way to the house.
Campbell has been in serious need of working and enjoyed it hugely.
He too, needs to lose some weight, so this has been good for the both of us.
Once again, having King Campbell Super Seeing Eye Dog A.K.A Bubba has increased my ability to fight problems that plague me and is helping me over-come more and more issues each day.
I do not know what I’d do without this big Bubba by my side.
Well, until next time this is Patty, who feels a ton better than she did when she awoke this early morning, and King Campbell Super Seeing Eye Dog A.K.A Bubba who was happy to get out and stretch his legs saying…
No matter what type of issue you have, there surely is an answer if you look for it, may harmony find you, and blessid be.

Bubba Tails Media Kit
Welcome to my Media Kit King Campbell and I are pleased to present
some wondrous stories and art work to you all. Enjoy.
Bubba Tails from the Puppy Nursery at The Seeing Eye Written by Patty L. Fletcher Told by, King Campbell Lee – The Seeing Eye Dog AKA Bubba
Spring and Summer 2017
In this magical and love filled tail, King Campbell AKA Bubba travels
to the puppy nursery at The Seeing Eye to help ready a group of
puppies who are just about to embark on the fabulous journey of
learning to become Seeing Eye dogs. Just as he is about to finish his
tail, a wee pup becomes very frightened of all that lies ahead, and one
frightfully stormy night she runs away! Will King Campbell hear the
urgent call from the puppy nursery in time? Will they find her and save
her so she can fulfill her destiny?
The use of Tail instead of Tale for story and Magik instead of Magic is intended for these short stories. A great play on words from King Campbell
Patty Lyne Fletcher in her own words (October 2017
About me and my crew
I’m a 49-year-old single mother with a beautiful daughter, of whom I am very proud. I have a great son-in-law and five beautiful grandchildren. Three girls,
and two boys. I hope to be able to write more about them later on.
I own and handle a Black Labrador from The Seeing Eye™ named Campbell Lee—a.k.a. Bubba Lee or King Campbell, to give just a couple of his nicknames.
When and where I was born
I was born on November 9, 1967 in Kingsport, Tenn., where I also grew up.
About my blindness
I was born one and a half months premature. My blindness was caused by my being given too much oxygen in the incubator. I was partially sighted until 1991,
at which time I lost my sight due to an infection after cataract surgery and high eye pressure. I used a cane for 31 years before making the change to
a guide dog.
Where I live and work
Currently, I live and work in Kingsport, Tenn.
I used to work for CONTACT-CONCERN of Northeast Tennessee, Inc. I left that position in order to spend time with family and pursue my writing full time.
Why I write.
I wrote Campbell’s Rambles: How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life to tell the story of how going to The Seeing Eye™ and getting Campbell, learning to
love, handle, and work him, then coming home and adding him to my life, gave me true freedom.
I tell of how changing from being a 31-year cane user to being a guide dog handler taught me things about myself I had never known before. I tell of the
wonderment I experienced when I finally took that chance.
A major goal of mine is to help others who find themselves in domestic violence situations. I also want to help others learn more
about mental illnesses and how different situations and environments can drastically affect those with such challenges.
I tell how training affected me physically as a result of the fibromyalgia I deal with, along with the side effects of the medications I take.
I focus on bipolar disorder, on how it can go horribly wrong and cause a person to behave in ways they normally would not.
Another thing I have attempted to show is how, in certain institutional settings, attachments can develop—and how those attachments can become unhealthy
for all concerned if they are not handled correctly.
Most simply, I want others to know more about me.
In Bubba Tails From the Puppy Nursery At The Seeing Eye, it is King Campbell Super Seeing Eye Dog A.K.A Bubba’s turn to tell his tale.
While helping to ready a group of pups to go and meet their puppy raiser families, so they too, might one-day become Seeing Eye dogs, he tells of what
it was like for him, to grow up and become a Seeing Eye dog.
My hobbies include reading, writing, music, and standup comedy. I also like nature walks, light hiking, tent camping, and fishing. No, I am not afraid
to bait a hook.
Music I enjoy
My favorite types of music are classic rock, rhythm and blues, and classic country, as well as some present-day country music. I also like meditation music.
My favorite books and authors
I enjoy fantasy, science fiction, and books about the supernatural. I love the books by Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and many more. My favorite books include
Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, and J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series.
My spiritual faith
I am a spiritual walker. I claim no particular faith, either Christian or pagan. I simply know that there is God and Goddess, or Mother Father God, as
some call her/him. I lean toward the natural approach, or Druidism (Druidry), as it promotes harmony and respect for all beings, including the environment.
I am also very interested in herbs and their healing properties. I recently enrolled in a course that will allow me to earn a certificate in the field
of working with herbs.
