How I came to help Leanne
Woof! It is Rosie here and just wanted to give you a little history on how i came to live with, love and assist my mom and partner, Leanne. I am going to nap now..BIG day shopping..will let Leanne fill you in.
Hi! This is Leanne..I love and live every day with my Rosie! I had researched many sites for a service dog for psychiatric disabilities. What I found was that there are MANY sites in the United States and one or two in Ontario. How happy I was to find West Coast Assistance Teams, a lower mainland Society that helped me find Rosie! Their education, training and loving care will be treasures to me always.
Psychiatric illness is an invisible disability to the public. When I am outside with Rosie many questions are asked. I love to inform and with Rosie I can, before I would hide. Rosie is the best medicine for my disability. I myself, as I am sure many people, diagnosed with a mental illness have to endure a regiment of presrcription meds..some good..some horrible. Rosie is the best treatment..dependable, stable and loving. What better pill is there than the loving look in her eyes when she wants to go outside! Rosie will alert and kiss me till I get up for the day..no pill could do that! Rosie will make sure I take my meds, I never forget now.
Follow our blog for all our adventures! Rosie allows me to experience the future and brings light into a dark world...love you Rosie.
