I am sad too say that today we lost a very special member of our family! We lost my Aunt Marcia's 10 year old Golden Retriever "Boomer"! He was a lovable dog to everyone that knew him! He would give you a great big snuggle and a lick on cheek to show that he loved you!
Sometimes people with Cerebral Palsy have what they call a Service Dog! Which usually is a Golden Retriever or a Chocolate Lab! People who work at specials schools for the disabled, disabled apartments, and Nursing Homes train the dogs and also train people with Cerebral Palsy or other disabilities too be self-sufficient and live on their own! Which is very frightening for someone with Cerebral Palsy!
Usually the dogs have too wear what they call a harness over their back and people are NOT allowed too pet them or touch them unless the owner of the animal says that it's alright for you to do so because the dog's main purpose is too help the disabled person live a normal life as possible!
We will miss "Boomer" dearly but we know that he is out of pain and in a very special place! Thanks Boomer for bringing so MUCH joy and love into every one's hearts and lives! You are,were, and always remembered as one of the GREATEST dogs in the world! "We love You and Miss You"!
