Service dogs are more than companions

     I attended a meeting of the MS Society last week.  After speaking with several people, I realized that it would take some work to convince people that service dogs are not just companions to make you feel better, but really work to make life easier.  Service dogs can help people regain their independence by completing the tasks that MS makes impossible. 
     Your service dog will pick up the remote, hand you your cell phone, open the door, help with laundry, close or open a door, hit the elevator button, and on and on.
     I sincerely hope I can help get the word out because the dogs can really make life with MS much easier.
