Not being able to speak is not the same as not having anything to say.

We love the ebook “My Skilled Companion Dog”  by Samuel Habib. It is a great and very realistic account of  getting a CCI ( Canine Companion for Independence)  skilled companion dog.

Henry also has a CCI skilled companion dog, Denzel. CCI’s two week training and matching program was such an extraordinary experience for Henry and me. We completed the course on CCI’s Orlando campus, living in a dorm with 6 other families . The kindness and generosity exemplified by everyone involved was so touching ; from the amazing puppy raisers, the volunteers feeding us everyday, the patient and loving staff and trainers, to the other recipients( wonderful life long friends) .

All of the dogs are so incredible and the staff does such a great job matching the teams- Denzel and Henry were definitely meant to be together.

Thank you Samuel for documenting something so special with My Skilled Companion Dog.
