I had to share this “sign from the universe” moment. I have been trying to decide if I should train my own own service dog (a breeder whom I work closely with has a litter of puppies due next month and offered me one if I wanted to train my own service dog). This is a difficult decision because raising any puppy is a challenge, but raising your own service dog and all the training. That requires is challenging for a person without any complex health conditions! A friend who puppy raises for Canine Companions for Independence also contacted me this week and told me to watch the live stream graduation ceremony today -where people are given their new service dog companions. Just as I started watching, one of the “graduates” got up on stage to tell her story. As she was telling her story I was thinking “this sounds like eds “. Then she said she has EDS and POTS! I am sharing the video with you. Kamryn tells her story at about minute -20:55. This inspired me to fill out an application for a Canine Companion service dog!🦮 https://youtu.be/1qCHzFAKa9s
