Suzi was placed with Laser, a male, black Labrador in early 2014. Suzi is a nurse, who can take her dog with her in her part-time job with the Oakland Catholic diocese as the hearing screener for Kindergarten through 8th grade students. She and Laser are growing into quite a combo in this role.
She starts her work at 8 in the morning, ready to screen the kinders first. A lot of the time, they don’t even notice him…all that blackness! But then he lets out one of his patented low mellow groans and they all scream in excitement and discovery. He lays right beside me and has alerted while I am testing the children. This has raised much interest and curiosity, especially of the older kids, who have lots of questions…a true learning experience.
Laser is a great help and joy in the management of my diabetes. Thank you D4D!
