I think I might have mentioned before that I completed a service dog exam. This means, that I learned to help ill, wounded or very sad children and adults. This is an ability me and Mum instinctively have. Something we were born with, I guess. Of course Mum had to study it for almost two years and I also had to do a lot of preparation for my exam.
You can’t even imagine how good it feels to be helping a person as a dog – especially if you’re not some kind of pedigree, but a little cross breed like me.
We were once in an institution where one of the little girls had not spoken for three months, she was so worn out by the loss of her mother. I walked over to her, leaned gently on her, and didn’t move for several minutes. She started stroking, and patting me and even started talking to me, without even noticing. The nurses looked at us with tears in their eyes and just said, “this dog is wonderful!”
