Erin & Service Dog Freedom

"Freedom is my first Service Dog.  She keeps my independence.  She is there as a guide if I'm home alone, so I'm not afraid.  We've done lots of things together.  We've gone to almost every concert at Indian Ranch over the summer.  We got to meet Brett Michaels.  And we have also done the Relay For Life. She helps me to do the laundry, which she loves to do. You say to her, 'come on, let's do the laundry' and she picks up my clothes and shuts the laundry door for me. She gets the phone, and she'll bark if I need assistance, so somebody can come down from upstairs.  And I'm just really glad that I have her."
