Dogs always make good and reliable support animals. That’s why they’re always trained to assist humans who have disabilities or emotional struggles.
But who says that dogs can’t support their fellow dogs? If that’s a new thing to you, just read this story of Lily and Kinley. It’ll definitely warm your heart.
The lives of Lily and Kinley
Kinley had lost her hearing when she was just a six-month-old pup. A lot of times, her disability caused her anxiety since she didn’t have any idea what was happening around her. But those anxious feelings would go away whenever her support dog Lily was around.
Lily joined Kinley’s family as a service dog for their owner. But it didn’t take long before the family realized that Lily could also be a service dog for Kinley, who seemed very pleased with the idea.
Bridget Evans, the dogs’ owner, says that Kinley is much more confident, content, and comfortable when Lily is just nearby. The deaf dog heavily relies on Lily who appears to love her job. Telling Kinley that it’s time for a walk is probably Lily’s most favorite task.
Time for a walk!
Because she is professionally trained, Lily knows what to do in case her mom needs assistance. So, when Bridget asks Lily to get Kinley before their strolls, the dog already understands the assignment. Kinley, on the other hand, already knows exactly what her dog sister is telling her.
So how does Lily tell Kinley it’s time for a walk? It’s just simple – Lily will just boop the other dog’s nose. More often than not, Lily approaches Kinley who likes to take naps. Nevertheless, Kinley will wake up right away, evidently excited to leave the house and walk with her mom and sister.
Bridget says that Lily and Kinney are the best of friends. And she is glad to share glimpses and vignettes of the dog’s friendship with the world.
