Ehlers-Danlos Companion Wins “Top Dog” Award
Service dogs are not only a cherished companion, but also protect and assist EDSers in amazing ways.
“A cocker spaniel has picked up a top prize at Crufts for helping her owner Lucy Watts from Benfleet in Essex.
Molly was announced as the winner of the Crufts Friends for Life 2014 competition.
Molly and Lucy, who’s 20, were voted the most deserving winners out of five shortlisted finalists by the British public. Lucy has a life-limiting rare genetic illness called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, that has left her in a wheelchair.
Lucy said she was isolated, withdrawn and unhappy but Molly has given her independence again and taken the focus of strangers away from her condition”
Lucy is blessed to have a fantastic service dog who has improved her health and security.
