Narrator Suzanne Elise Freeman delightfully narrates this work about dogs who assist sick kids and adults. This greatly helps the unwell, caregivers, and often doctors. Listeners will travel the country and the world to meet a number of canine service dogs and their companions, including Pippin, a psychiatric service dog whose assistance helps Elizabeth gain independence, and a dog who helps Samuel recover from his epileptic seizures more quickly. Freeman's warm style is particularly appealing when she describes her successful and less successful canine encounters using her self-deprecating humor. She makes her visits with doctors and quotes from studies fully understandable. Most heartbreaking is learning about how nonthreatening dogs work with very young children who have been sexually abused. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
