Leigh Brill finally decided to stop pretending she was just fine when she admitted to the service dog interviewer, "I have cerebral palsy. I walk funny and my balance is bad. I fall a lot. My hands shake, too. That means I'm not so good at carrying things. And if I drop stuff, sometimes it's hard to just bend down and get it." So began her journey toward independence and confidence, all thanks to a trained companion dog named Slugger.

The struggling college student and the Labrador with "a coat like sunshine" and a tail that never stopped wagging became an instant team. Together, they transformed a challenge into a triumph. Together, they inspired and educated everyone they met. Now, Leigh honors her friend with the story of their life together.
