We received an email today from one of our clients that was recently matched with a service dog and we just had to share:
"Last night, Tango and I were watching TV around 8pm & Tango started nipping at my shirt. At 7am this morning, I woke up with a burst blood vessel in my right eye. I think Tango knew that this was going to happen before I did. We had to stay quiet all day per MD orders. Tango & I enjoyed time out in the grass & out in the courtyard. We also enjoyed some snuggle time.
After only being together for 14 days, it is amazing to me that Tango knew what was happening with my eye. He stayed by my side throughout the day & continually checked on me. He is responding amazingly well. In many ways, he reminds me of Sierra and how quickly he alerted to a problem. But just like Conner, he is my happy go lucky boy. With time and patience, our bond will only get stronger. He is wanting to rub up against me and snuggle. He is definitely as attached as I am. THANK YOU for allowing this boy to come home!" - Vikki & Tango
It's easy to get caught up in the busyness of the day to day tasks. Since I am mainly just in the office, I don't get to see our clients with their service dogs and the impact they have on their daily lives. It's stories like this that remind me of the importance of what we do. Thank you for all of your support in allowing us to continue our mission.
