Aiko — Service
Aiko is a Hero Dog to me because she has enabled me to safely do so many things that I just couldn’t do before getting her. With her by my side, I can do things that a lot of people take for granted like taking my daughter to the playground or going grocery shopping or even just to doctor’s appointments. Without her, I would need to have a family member with me at all times in case of medical emergency. She does everything I ask of her with a doggie smile on her face. She’s given me my independence back and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to properly pay her back.
