Canine Companions: A Gift of Independence and the People That Make it Possible
If you love dogs and you love people, you will love this show! This is our first show on Canine Companions, the dogs bred to become a gift of independence and the people who make this possible. On the show, host Suzanne Phillips speaks with Ashley Koehler, a Development Associate of Canine Companions who describes the overall workings of this nationwide organization and the way you can become involved; Dee Appleman, a puppy raiser of fifteen years and nine rescue dogs; and Jerry Llyons, a man who wondered if he could qualify and has been the loving recipient of two service dogs. Their discussion and their personal stories will inform you and touch your heart. You will never notice a little dog in a yellow cape or a grown service dog accompanying the wheel chair of his master in the same way again.
