Paula and Charlie — February 8, 2021

Paula and Charlie

~ Paula and Charlie ~

Charlie, a lovely black labrador, met his fur-ever person, Paula, during a breeder meet-and-greet. From there, it was love at first sight.

Charlie is now in training to become Paula’s Assistance Dog. Paula, unfortunately, struggles with her mental health on a daily basis. Dealing with such conditions as PTSD, EUPD, and anxiety, present many challenges. However, amid all this, she knows Charlie is right there for her to help her find hope.

After her mental health challenges overwhelmed her, Paula nearly lost her life. It was in this moment, Charlie comforted her. He stayed right by her side until help arrived. His unwavering loyalty helped to pull her through this dark moment. If it wasn’t for Charlie, Paula isn’t sure what would have happened during that time, nor if she would be here now. Charlie saved her life that day, and every day since.

Having Charlie has added a bit of hope to Paula’s life and encourages her to keep going. Every morning, Charlie helps Paula get up, usually by him wondering where his breakfast is! Charlie gives Paula a sense of responsibility. He helps her focus on something outside of herself and to care for another living being.

Not only this, but because of Charlie, Paula has become more active. She goes out with Charlie for walks and they often enjoy playing with Charlie’s many toys. They also do a lot of training, such as obedience and assistance dog lessons. They especially love walking along the beach together, with the occasional swim!

Paula feels that, without Charlie, she might not be here. He is her hero and she is immensely grateful to him. He helps her through the tough times and makes the good times better. It is evident how much they care for one another. Charlie has brought hope, happiness, and love into Paula’s life.
