For the first time in my life, I didn't need to pretend, I didn't need to be tough: I only needed to be honest. "I have cerebral palsy. I walk funny and my balance is bad. I fall a lot. My hands shake, too. That means I'm not so good at carrying things. And if I drop stuff, sometimes it's hard to just bend down and get it." I waited anxiously for the interviewer's response. She smiled. "It sounds like a service dog could be great for you."
So began Leigh Brill's journey toward independence and confidence, all thanks to a trained companion dog named Slugger.
The struggling college student and the Labrador with a "a coat like sunshine" and a tail that never stopped wagging became an instant team. Together, they transformed a challenge into a triumph. Together, they inspired and educated everyone they met. Now, Leigh honors her friend with the story of their life, together.

He is the best!
Most definitely would recommend this audible to everyone. I love this story about a great dog! Slugger really did try to help his disabled owner with so much. He was always there and a most faithful companion. It was a good book.
Can't think of another book like this at the moment. Any books where a dog can become more than just a pet would be a great comparison.
Excitement in experiencing life as a person with CP. All emotions and feelings were expressed brilliantly.
Life with Slugger and CP.
This is worth your time.
