Real Life

Jason and Service Dog Dougie

Having Dougie has been completely life changing. 

With chronic pain even the smallest tasks, the ones most people take for granted, can suck every ounce of energy from you.  Every time Dougie picks something up off the floor, opens a door, or gets something out of reach is a blessing. 

The other piece I think about is not what Dougie does but what he is.  His willingness and eagerness to help and serve is a big part of the impact that he has had.  He is much, much more than a Service Dog.
