SSD TJ: Balance on the Roller Coaster of Life
SSD TJ came into my life a few years after two miraculous cancer surgeries and being homebound for three years. Hershey Medical Center had recommended that I get an assistance dog for help with balance. Our journey together has not only been about physical balance but also emotional stability.
For Puppy Raiser Carrie Stone, "Shedding a few tears is worth it!"
We changed each other's lives really…
I started volunteering years ago because I wanted to take SSD Laurel home occasionally. Then SSD Bebe needed a sitter, and that was it. I got sucked in. After helping to interview many potential puppy raisers and not being able to explain the puppy raising experience to them, I decided to take the plunge and raise one. Just one. Shortly after making the decision, a little black bundle of fur named SSD Buster entered my life.
