I was wondering if anyone else has a service dog. I have a 5 year old goldendoodle named "Doodle" that picks things up off the floor and helps me off the ground. I need her help when my family isn't around, I can't touch the ground because of fusion in my back. At both my work places they have made accommodations for my disability so I can continue working (mostly dustpans and brooms for when I drop something.

Just curious. She has been a life saver when I drop my keys in the Walmart parking lot. She's also great on those days I'm feeling discouraged. How can you not love this face?

What a darling gal. Big scritches to her.

I've always had a dog - and loads of animals, including two horses ! But now no animals. With the arthritic feet found exercising last dog impossible on some days. Had to re-home my last one. A rather nice though quite batty Hungarian Vizsla.

You do work hard - amazing. Kudos to you - take care

She is precious. We have a grand dog, Harvey, who is a Golden Doodle but I think he is much larger than your precious girl.

We have a dog we love so much but she is not a service dog. I went through the process some years back but ended up dropping it. Now I wish I had followed through

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Molly! Love your picture on your horse.

Hi Utahmom

I have two services dogs. As I have many allergies, I first got Makaylah, a standard Poodle (58 lbs) - she has help me so much. I locked myself out of my apartment - she was able to get the door unlocked, so I could get back in. She picks up everything off the floor for me even her toys. She brings me, my cane, head set (to stop the loud noise from fire alarm). A month ago she helped me up off the floor. There is so much more she does for me but I should tell you about Shiloh, a tiny toy Poodle (6 lbs - fully grown) - He helps we with everything else. I have central apnea - don't know when they are going to happen. He is being taught to recognize when they are happening. He is to jump on my chest and bark in my face (he knows how to bark well lol) (he still learning to recognize when my brain forgets to tell me to breath). He sleeps on my left side at my heart level - I would be lost if he is not there - but soon as light goes off at night he cuddles in for the night. Month ago - the day I fell - puppy was anxious to learn a new skill - I went to get a treat - which I was going to give him - if he brought to me a plastic half ball (use for computer) - well he brought it to me - I wasn't expecting him in the kitchen - I had gotten the treat - turned - stepped down on the half ball - down I went. He had brought the ball to me - dropped it at my feet . Makaylah got a treat for helping me up - Shiloh got a treat for sitting still while I got up off the floor. NO treat, for bringing ball for me. As he is a tiny toy poodle - I have to teach him differently than how Makaylah has been taught. Shiloh, can't have any collar on his neck. His neck is too small. Makaylah, has help me teach him many skills. Love my service dogs Makaylah, and Shiloh - hope your service dog gives you much help and enjoyment.

What a great picture... looks like a very nice dog.

No service dog here... just a mini-schnauzer that wants to play and eat all the time.
