Sometimes he walks funny…and people stare at him..

Hi my name is Jack. I am a working dog. I received no special training like a guide dog or a police dog. My job is to help my owner, he has Parkinson’s Disease. Sometimes he walks funny…and people stare at him.

I was 7 when I met him and his family 3 years ago, there is a Mum, a boy, a girl, a cat and him. The first thing I noticed was that when he was tired or working too hard he his right leg would get stiff and his right arm would shake. Sometimes he walks funny…and people stare at him.

I am a dog, so I cannot not ask him what’s wrong, is he sick, will he get better? So I help as I can, I always walk on his right side so that if he gets stiff I can but my shoulder to his knee and this helps him to walk better. Sometimes he freezes and cannot get his right leg to move, he stumbles, if this happens I put my head to his knee and give it a push, this gets him moving again. Sometimes he walks funny…and people stare at him.

Why do people stare at him? Are they afraid? Parkinson’s Disease is an invisible condition, they see the symptoms and draw their conclusions. I am a dog so I see the husband, the father, the friend, the provider; I see my master. Sometimes he walks funny… and I make him smile.
