Form Chris / K9 Bruce

Hi, my name is Chris. I live in Ontario Canada and I was partnered up with Bruce about three months ago through MSAR. I wanted to write and thank you for all the work and effort that you put into training Bruce. He has been life changing for me since my accident. He is alerting to my fainting episodes, my anxiety and my nightmares where he wakes me up three or four times a night. He is also doing counterbalance and compression therapy for me. (FYI my wife is extremely happy that she does not have to pick up my clothes anymore as Bruce gets that privilege LOL ) For the first time in over two and a half years I actually had the confidence to go to a restaurant with my wife. I cannot thank you enough for the time and effort you have put into Bruce to allow me to get apart of my life back. Bruce has not only become part of the family, he has become part of me. This is his new home.  I just wanted to say thank you to George and all the people that were involved in bringing Bruce into my life from Israel. To say he was life changing is an under statement. The things he helps me with are numerous. Today he made it possible to go to a movie with my family for the first time in almost four years. Bruce was amazing as usual and towards the end of the movie he alerted and did his job. This is has given me and my family the confidence to go out and do the things we have not been able to since my accident.  I’m not sure how to put my feelings into words as thank you does not seem to be enough.
