“It was love at first sight. She had the sexiest titanium legs I had ever seen,” says Jay about his wife Katy.
Jay saw those sexy titanium legs at a rehabilitation center after a rock climbing accident left him without the use of his legs.
In 2009 Jay and Katy were married and in 2012 Jay graduated with Canine Companions Service Dog Goliath.
“Goliath instantly became a third member of our family,” share Jay and Katy.
“Before he’s our family pet, he’s my employee,” Jay continues. “He helps me tremendously by picking up dropped items and opening doors for me.”
“One time I dropped 14 dollar bills on the floor, and Goliath picked them all up for me,” Jay explains.
Goliath’s best benefit of working for Jay, is cuddle time with Katy.
“Every morning Goliath lays on his back with his feet in the air while I pet him,” Katy says. “It’s the greatest.”
