Alison and Wynn

When Rivendell, Alison’s second CPL service dog, was no longer able to keep up with Alison’s changing and increasing needs we began to look for a successor dog for her. She bonded quickly with Wynn. For his part, he decided this was to be his mom and literally planted himself on her to keep her in line. He began alerting to blood sugar changes and severe vertigo early – and learned quickly that it’s tough to get Alison to stop and stay – he was often found literally laying that entire great big body on her lap as she sat on the sidewalk or in the recliner. We know that these two are going to go out, take on new challenges and share CPL and their new found independence with the world.
