Loyal And Inspiring
Before service dogs, some people with disabilities were unable to live full lives, being trapped within their own four walls. A service dog opens up lives to new possibilities. “You are not tied to the dog, you are freed by it.” For the blind, their dogs are their eyes, steering them out of danger.
All the dogs mentioned really seem to possess a sixth sense when it comes to their owners and impending danger. They really are life savers, with one dog literally giving his life for his owners. “She was there to offer love and service.”
Sometimes people see only the disability and not the person. Having worked for fifteen years with children with disabilities, it used to annoy me when people would ask me questions about the child when the child was with me and could have answered themselves. A service dog opens up new avenues of friendship for the disabled. People first see the dog and then begin a conversation. “Fresca enlarged her circle of friends.”
The service dogs offer hope and freedom. “Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” Their stories are inspirational. Their stories will bring a tear to your eye. My favourite has to be the final tale in the book.
Ace Tails is a wonderful collection of tales celebrating the service dogs. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can highly recommend it.
