Louise, who lives in Seattle, had to have one of her legs amputated above the knee due to a post-surgery infection. She uses a manual wheelchair, and cloud is able to help her with tasks like opening and closing doors and retrieving dropped items. Louise works at the University of Washington’s Cascadia campus two days a week and uses public transportation to get to work, with Cloud at her side and always eager to help. She was paired with Cloud, a lovely Yellow Lab, in April of 2010 after a three-year wait as an applicant. They bonded very quickly and have become a wonderful partnership.
