Thanks for Kind Strangers

  Last year my husband Dale developed a terrible disease. He became fearful of going anywhere alone or of being alone as some of his seizures(癫痫) were quite serious.

We decided that a trained medical service dog would greatly help Dale. It would be a companion for Dale,and the dog would be trained to stay with him. If he had a seizure,with a service dog beside him,others could see and will be more likely to help.

A local person sold us a black Labrador dog. Nevaeh was eight weeks old when we got her. At that point,we turned to the local papers for help. We hoped that getting Dale's story out would help raise funds to pay for the dog's training.

One day there was a knock at the door. I went to answer. It's a stranger holding the newspaper article about Dale in her hand. She introduced herself as June and told me that her daughter's dog had warned her to a cancer she never knew she had,probably saving her life. Now,she felt obliged to help our dog because a dog had helped her. She shocked us when she gave us $100! We never expected such caring and kindness from a stranger. 

Dale had been feeling the world didn't care,but this help him get confidence again. The next thing that happened was that Dale asked local vets(兽医) for care for our dog. We received a response from a hospital which has since provided Nevaeh's care for free. If it weren't for such amazing people,Dale probably would have become a total recluse(隐士),feeling he could never go anywhere alone.
