Sometimes the wait is worth it! I know it will be for a service dog. I still am not sure which service dog that I will be getting, yet I know that I am part of a group of people who love and care about dogs and how they can assist those with a disability.
Almost two months have passed since I interviewed with the organization. Since then, I have been lucky enough to meet up with the dogs on one occasion.
Even though there is a lot of time to go, I am nervous. The dog is going to need to be walked and taken care of. What if I am having a hard time? Is that why he/she will be there? Give and take. He/She will help me get out of bed and in turn we can both take a walk and get out of the house.
Then, I am worried how my friends and family are going to accept a dog coming into their homes. I know that my friends and family are supportive, yet a 70 lb dog is something else!!
As hard as it is to wait, I know that the wait will be worth it and I will be ready.
