In this episode I will speak with Riley Mers. As a child Riley developed a dangerous food allergy to peanuts and spent her childhood with her service dog Rock'O. Her allergies were so sever she still has a scar on her foot from a time when a peanut shell slipped into her sandal at the park, burning her skin like an acid. Rock'O was trained to detect peanuts and keep her safe. Riley will also talk about what it was like growing up with a service dog and also some of the frustrations with "fake" service dogs. Amazingly at age 10 Riley returned the favor and saved a life as she preformed life saving skills to another service dog when he cut his leg to the bone from a plastic swimming pool. She controlled bleeding, muzzled the dog and even checked his pulse. Please join me for this inspiring podcast.
