Episode # 28 (Me & My Sister & Her Dog)

22 Jun

Meet my sister Kit and her new service dog, Lexi! Lexi is a diabetic service dog, which Kit acquired from Service Dogs by Warren Retrievers. Her dog is about 9 months old now and has been living with Kit and her family since April 2014. These service dogs are amazing! Lexi alerted Kit of a “low” in her blood sugar the very first day she arrived! Good dog Lexi! Kit is still raising funds for her dog and if you would like to make a small donation, it would greatly be appreciated! Thanks so much for helping!

You can donate to Kit’s dog at:
