CCI Dog Cary Winner of the AKC Service Dog Award

CCI Dog Cary Winner of the AKC Service Dog Award

 Lizzy and CCI dog Cary The American Kennel Club Award for Canine Excellence in the category of Service Dog was given to CCI Service Dog Cary. For eight years Cary, a beautiful yellow Labrador, has been assisting fourteen-year-old Lizzy who uses a wheelchair and depends on Cary for help with such things as opening doors, picking up dropped items, helping with light switches, carrying her lunch box, and even bringing clothes so she can get dressed. 

With Service Dog Cary by her side, Lizzy has gained a greater sense of self-reliance and has been able to live a more active lifestyle. Cary received her award at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship on December 13 in Long Beach, California. The National Championship will be broadcast on Animal Planet on January 31, 2009.
