Appreciate the support, acceptance of my service dog

Appreciate the support, acceptance of my service dog

I would like to thank Auburn Police, the emergency ambulance and the hospital. A recent and my first tragic accident sent me to the hospital, where throughout the journey everyone accepted and acknowledged my service dog without question or reservation.

This little dog might not seem like much to anyone, but to me with my illnesses she is what keeps me calm, keeps my blood pressure under control and warns me if I’m having problems. Her presence with me throughout this event was critical to my health, safety and recovery.

Thank you seems like so little, yet it means so much.
