What service does this dog do/? I'm just curious. Dogs aren't usually
assigned to younge folks. Sometimes they do wonders though! I didn't have a
service dog for 45 years by choice. hHowever, now that I have one, I'd
probably get another. I have had pets especially dogs seems like forever! I
could write a book about dogs both service and pet that would make the best
of us laugh, cry and stir up a whole lot of feeling! I would love to meet a
handler who is doing great that younge!

Sorry I didn't reply to this earlier, I'm at sports camp this week at WMU. 

The story of my daughter Calli and Q, the youngest pairing ever in the
Midwest is a good one. They were paired by MIRA when she was 12. He goes
with her to school. When she was 14 she spent 5 weeks on the hospital with a
brain bleed. Q visited every day and then stayed at night too when she was
allowed to get out of bed after the 4th week. He learned to pull
wheelchairs, learned to walk more slowly as she relearned to walk and napped
on the bed with her when she was exhausted. When Q was with her, her vital
signs improved. 

Here's the link to a story about her recently and one before.
