As you know over two weeks ago I received a hearing dog. I found him in the International Hearing Dog Inc. Robert Cooley the trainer flew Douglas down from Colorado for me. Then he stayed in town for a few days teaching me how to train the dog. Since I was born deaf, it would help me to have a dog to notify me of sounds I can’t hear. He also goes to work with me every single day. This dog is allowed with me in all public places. A few times I have been stopped by security guards asking what is the dog doing in the store. So I had to inform them it was a hearing dog and that it’s perfectly legal to have it in the store. Ever since Douglas has come into my life, it has changed for the better.
