Eve and Finn hold a special place in my heart and I am excited to get to share a bit of their story!
Eve was born with O.I (Osteogenesis imperfecta) also known as "brittle bone disease". Finn is Eve's mobility dog. He helps her with her mobility needs, i.e. transferring from the floor to her chair, but his large size also keeps Eve safe in busy environments. Because Eve is fragile it can be dangerous for her to be in a crowd where she could easily get bumped into. Finn, however, is hard to ignore in the busiest of crowds. People are sure to give Eve plenty of room when Finn is at her side.
Finn has become more than a service dog to Eve. Together the two explore new places and meet new people. They read and snuggle. And, they have been making waves preforming together!
Most recently, Even and Finn preformed in a musical side by side. Long before that, Finn has been supporting Eve from the sidelines while Eve dances.
Eve loves having Finn in her life, and Finn knew Eve was the girl for him from the first time he saw her. When I asked Eve what their least favorite thing to do together was she said, "...that's a bit of a hard one because we're always so happy when we are together..." Though, apparently, Finn is not too found of playing fetch so that game is out!
One of Eves fondest memories of Finn is when they first met at Service Dog Project and instantly connected. They also had an adventure involving monkey's at the Omaha zoo but I'll leave the rest of the story up to your imagination.
This is one incredible team! I have loved getting to know Eve and Finn and cannot wait to see what the future holds for them. Although Eve and Finn were not featured in "Our Service Dogs" we will definitely be seeing more of them soon!
...well, Finn might have snuck in as a cameo in "Our Service Dogs"...
