Gus & Hearing Dog Casey

"First of all, I want to thank not only the people from NEADS but everyone who understands how meaningful these dogs are to us, how they assist us every day.  But the best thing I can give you is an example of how I need her.  I am on dialysis 9 hours a day and I don't hear alarms, I don't hear the telephone, but especially over my dialysis machine.  I'm on it nine hours overnight.  When I wake up in the morning my wife usually has left for work.  When the machine ends, instead of my wife being there, I find the dog there licking my face and telling me the machine has ended."
