A Dog Named Slugger - A Review

If you’re a dog lover you know first hand the comfort, unconditional love and companionship they bring to your life. However, for some people with disabilities these animals provide so much more then just a furry friend. They mean independence and freedom.

Author Leigh Brill struggled with being independent. The challenges of living and dealing with cerebral palsy on a day to day basis left her frustrated, tired and strained, that is until she was introduced to the idea of having a service dog to help her...

Meet Slugger, a beautiful Labrador Retriever that not only aided Leigh in her daily challenges, but also gave her friendship, service and loyalty. This relationship was more than love, it was life-changing.

A Dog Named Slugger by Leigh Brill is one of the most inspiring and uplifting books I’ve read in a long time. Brill holds nothing back detailing her struggles, training and eventual partnership with her service dog Slugger.

“A dog is a (wo)man’s best friend...” Leigh demonstrates this statement in a heartfelt and awe inspiring manner that will leave you wanting to run to your nearest shelter or hug your own furry friend.
