Description

Dottie was my eyes for me for 2 1/2 years. She saved my life twice. The first time was when she stopped me from going on out into the road. The second time was when I quit breathing in the middle of night. Dottie barkd and then growled. This alerted my mom who came and when she got there, Dottie was in my bed jumping with her front feet on my chest. By the time mom got there I was starting to breathe again. Dottie had a very active and productive life. She only lived to 3 1/2 because of renal failure. But during that time everyone k ew her and respected her for the job she did for me. I miss her so much. I lost her in October 2013. I go in March 2014 to get my new leader dog.
