“I got Princess and started training her for my mother.
In December of 2013, after having Princess only four days, my mother passed away.
I kept Princess and moved back east in April or May of 2014.
It was really hard at first when I moved to NYC.
My landlord said I couldn’t keep her, so I had to get a medical note saying that she had become my service dog to deal with the trauma from my mother’s passing.
We were separated for two years during this process.”
