It was my Primary Care doctor at the VA Hospital who suggested that I could really benefit from a service dog. Then my rehab team, cognitive rehabilitation specialist, physical therapist, physiatrist and occupational therapist were on board. They all thought that a dog could help enhance my mobility and ground my brain in the present moment with the opportunity for increased focus and concentration.Little did they know that Prince would do much more. With Prince, I am more physically active because I have help with my balance. I'm not afraid to go out and about because I'm not alone. Prince is always right by my side. We even go hiking and camping together! Life with Traumatic Brain Injury has many challenges. Prince helps to make lighter work with them. He's my helper, my companion, my co-worker, my closest friend, and my hero.I'm so grateful to Veterans Moving Forward for raising and training this incredible boy, Prince, the King of Dogs!!!
