Hi all!!

I haven't posted in a long while but I hope you've all been well. I have exciting news to share! I don't think I've mentioned it here but I've been in the market for a service dog for a long time. Up until now I have been on a waitlist, but due to amazing circumstances, it turns out there might be a dog for me that I could bring home in the next couple of weeks!!

The funny thing is that all the excitement and anticipatory anxiety from getting this news has flared up my nausea, I'm sitting here shaking. Even though it's not the best feeling, at least it's for a really, really great reason!

If I did photo/video updates, would any of you be interested in that?

Congratulations!  I am excited for you about the service dog.  And I hope you can relax from the excitement-stress from this news.

I think we will all be happy to see photos and/or video.  Please do share.

People ask a lot if this is an option for CVS patients. So I think that there is a huge interest in this even if there is not people that are commenting. And who doesn't love pictures of dogs? Post away!!

Congrats  I have a Service Dog for CVS, And my CVS Specialist gave me a letter, that Rocky has to be with me at all times,  Rocky can tell when I have an attack coming, I didn't get a warning before him and as ALOT of folks know one on here as The King of Puke, I don't know what I'd do without him !!!
Heave hoooooooo

I remember you getting Rocky and how Rocky would be glued to your side starting (if I am correct) around 20 min before the start of a cycle.  I am happy he is still with you and such a support!

Ohhh yea  Rocky  at First he was my ESA dog,  with I had an attack he stay with me and it helped a lot  My CVS Specialist Doc F gave me aletter saying he had to be with me all the time, then after about 6 months he stated getting in my face,  gave me the creeps, I have heard aminals can sometimes tell if your going to kick over and i'd push him off the bed, but he'd keep jumping up and stare at me, gave me the wicked willies till we started noticing that when he did that, i'd have an attack with in 30 mins  gave me enough time to get my emergency meds into me and IT HELPED BIG TIME, so now Rock is my BEST FRIEND FIRST  Medical Alert Dog second 
And he helps me with my bucket hehe

What a great picture! It is wonderful that you had gotten a dog that has been aware. If like mentione in another post, that there is a smell before the episode starts. If this applies to you, the CCI, or canine companion for independence, may be able to help train them for that. There are ways to register your animal as well.
