Service Dog

Posted by DTC40 , 31 January 2012 · 26 views

I lost my service dog on October 13th. It was hard loosing her. I thought that I would never get another service dog. She told me before I had grandmal seizures. She was my constant friend for years.

Today I gave in and met another service dog. I need help walking due to the bone cancer. The dog they gave me will tell me before seizures and also help me with walking and balance. She is a Great Pyrenese. She is solid white and her name is Sasha.

I never thought I could ever stand to have another dog. However, the docs convienced me just to go and meet her. It was love at first sight. She immediately came to my side and stood there, like come on lets go home.

I'm sorry for your lost but am also very excited about your instant connection with your new service dog!
Animals and humans have so much to offer each other, it's a beautiful bond when treated respectfully.
Awe! I'm a sucker for animals, can't imagine not having one in my life. I'm glad you took the risk and went to meet her. I hope she's able to help you :dancingbunny:
I have a service animal, and I have no shame in saying he is my best friend. The bond is one that is undescribale. He knows when I am upset or sad (even though thats not what he was trained for) and if I have to leave him at home he sits and stares out the window for hours.

I am so sorry for your loss of your friend.

I am so glad she was able to convince you to let her into your life. :) I have the most amazing dog, he is not in any way formally trained as a service dog, but he is my best friend, so I think I can understand a piece of how you feel-- I would feel very odd about "replacing" my little guy but at the same time, now that I'm used to that kind of companionship I can't imagine living without it.
