This Service Dog Story Might Make You Cry

Seriously, just warning you.

But then again, what service dog story DOESN'T make me cry?!

Meet Presley (dog) and Seph (human).

Seph is a 14-year-old middle schooler in Louisiana who is living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (meaning his muscles grow progressively weaker as he ages).
To help him through everyday life, he has Presley, his service dog. If Ware loses his balance or drops anything, Presley is there to help!
She has been by her human’s side for over three years and attends his classes at Good Hope Middle School.

Because of this, all of the students and staff know Presley.

"She's part of our student body,” explained Sonya Hogg, a yearbook adviser at the school.

“If we're going to put everybody in our school in the yearbook, then Presley needs to be in the yearbook,” Hogg told TODAY.

Glad to see that this awesome service dog got the recognition she deserves!

I hope that she gets rewarded at graduation too. She's been going to school every day for three years!

Have any of you met, used, or trained a service dog?

@sophiamor - I am very blessed to have him, for sure! Although he can't prevent episodes (obviously) he gives me enough time to prepare for one so that I don't end up blacking out, falling down, etc. while also preparing me for the pacing from my icd/Pacer which can be quite uncomfortable and sometimes make me sick. I only wish HE knew how amazing he truly is... ♡♡♡
