A Heartwarming Project

Whenever I see a service dog on the job, I feel gladdened.  It is such a terrific help to the blind person or the deaf individual or to someone with a seizure disorder and to folks with other disabilities.  Children over the age of ten are also qualified for this type of assistant.  The addition of such a specially trained dog into the lives of those affected with this type of problem can also be a relief and great help to the family of the disabled person as they can be a bit less vigilant; there is someone else watching their incapacitated family member.
From paying attention, over the years, every time I happen to see one of these animals on duty, I have come to be absolutely convinced that the dog is happy, even proud, fulfilling its position with its dear friend.  They know what they are supposed to do and seem quite gratified to be able to execute those tasks.
If you want to know more about these specially trained animals, Paws With A Cause trains assistance dogs nationally in this country for people with disabilities and provides lifetime support while encouraging independence.
