导读:导盲犬(guide dog)是盲人生活和心灵的良伴,却一度被很多大城市的公共场合拒之门外。不知要等到何时, 这些与盲人朝夕相处的伴侣们才能毫无阻碍地行走在光明照耀的各个地方?

导盲犬
“我的下一个梦想就是有一天珍妮能够引导着我在城市中自由行走。”

Under different circumstances, Jenny would be treated as one of China’s "talents". One of only 34 specialists in her field, she would be widely respected and given carte blanche in her work.
在有些情况下,珍妮可能会被当做是中国的一位“人才”。她是其工作领域中仅有的34位专家之一,人们本应对她表示尊敬并全权委托其处理自己的工作。

Jenny is a guide dog for a blind Beijing woman named Chen Yan. But,too many people and businesses won’t let Jenny do her job.
珍妮是来自北京的盲人陈燕女士的导盲犬。但许多人和商家都令珍妮没办法好好工作。

"I have never succeeded in taking Jenny into the subway station near my home, they don’t know how to deal with a guide dog in the subway." Chen said.
陈燕说道:“我从从来不能将珍妮带进我家附近的地铁站。工作人员不知道怎么对待一条导盲犬。”

"More people know about guide dogs,” said Wang Lin, a guide dog trainer,"However, some places are still not accessible to the dogs.”
导盲犬训练员王林说道:“越来越多的人开始知道导盲犬,但有些地方还是没有对这些狗狗们开放。”

New in China
新鲜事物

Guide dogs assist visually impaired and blind people by avoiding obstacles, stopping at curbs and steps, and negotiating traffic.
导盲犬可以帮助视碍者及盲人绕过障碍物,在路边和台阶前停住脚步,顺利穿过车流。

China’s Protection Law for Disabled Persons, Item 58, says guide dogs can work in public places as long as they are abide by local or relevant regulations. It’s that "abide by" part that allows for a local option.
《中华人民共和国残疾人保护法》第58条规定,导盲犬在遵守当地法规或相关规定的条件下可出入公共场所。正是“遵守相关规定”这一条件让很多地方拥有了选择是否允许导盲犬出入的权利。

However, some cities and provinces, including Shanghai, Shenzhen and Zhejiang province, require that assistance dogs be allowed into any workplace, museum, cinema, hospital or other public facility.
然而,在包括上海、深圳和浙江在内的有些省市,就规定导盲犬可以被允许进入任何工作场所、博物馆、电影院、医院和其他公共场合

"Guide dogs are new things in China, but using this kind of assistance dog is the right of the disabled," said Zhang Dongwang, deputy director of the rights protection office in the China Disabled Persons’ Federation.
中国残疾人联合会维权部副署长张东旺说道:“导盲犬在中国是新鲜事物,但残疾人仍有权获得导盲犬的帮助。”

Partners from the start
初识伴侣

In a country with about 13 million blind citizens, Jenny, a black Labrador retriever, is only the 18th guide dog.
在这个拥有1300多万盲人的国家,拉布拉多黑毛猎犬珍妮,是为数不多的导盲犬中的第18只。

Chen took Jenny home in April from the China Guide Dog Center in Dalian.
4月份,陈燕从大连导盲犬培训中心将珍妮带回了家。

Chen and Jenny have spent one month training together to see whether they are fit for each other.
陈燕和珍妮在一起培训了一个月时间,来确定她们是否适合对方。

During training, Jenny worked outside the kennel twice a day, walking with the trainer 40-60 minutes each time. She learned to respond to commands in Chinese and English, and to not respond if a stranger calls her name.
训练期间,珍妮每天在狗舍外练习两次,每次与培训员散步40至60分钟。她学会了对中英文的命令做出反应并对陌生人的呼唤不予理睬。

Counting on it
纸折星愿

Jenny is more than a working partner for Chen now, after only a few months.
现在,尽管只相处了短短数月,但珍妮和陈燕之间的感情已超出工作伙伴关系。

"She is my friend as well as my eyes. I experience the sense of independence and privacy other aid people never gave me."
“她既是我的朋友,又是我的眼睛。我体验到了拥有独立和隐私的感觉,这是其他帮助我的人不能给予我的。”

Chen once heard a story about the night sky: A dream will come true if a person keeps counting the stars until reaching 10,000. "I can’t see the stars in the night sky but I can fold paper stars with colorful paper strips.
陈燕曾经听说过一个关于夜空的故事:如果一个人坚持不懈地数到第一万颗星星,他的愿望就会实现。“虽然我看不见夜空中的星星,但我可以用彩色纸条折纸星星。”

"I am counting on it, and my next dream is one day my Jenny can take me freely walking in the city."
“我期待着,我的下一个梦想就是有一天珍妮能够引导着我在城市中自由行走。”
