A best friend

I write in response to your article about the school that is refusing to allow an assistance dog to accompany a pupil to class.

As someone who has an assistance dog, I think that this is disgraceful. I got my dog, 'Bart', from Irish Dogs for the Disabled last April.

Since I got Bart, my life has been transformed. Bart helps me to walk. He also does lots of other things for me such as picking up different items that I drop, opening and closing doors and even taking off my socks.
