The Road to Independence

August 27, 2018

Nugget has helped transform my life from staying at home all day, every day and barely being able to function to being back at work full time as a licensed clinical social worker in community health and primary care settings. While it was a long road, returning to work helped restore my sense of purpose and meaning, and has been an essential part of learning to live well in spite of the challenges I have.

In the time Nugget has been in my life we moved from small town Southern Oregon to right in the middle of Seattle, and most recently to Philadelphia. 

She's been my faithful companion for ten years. I know that she will want to retire soon. As my first service dog, Nugget has been a game changing, life saving good sport who brings a sense of calm joy, wisdom, and companionship to wherever we are.
