“Adel is my 3rd Autism Assistance Dog Guide, a shining, gleaming black Labrador Retriever, trained by the Lions Foundation. Sara and Matrix were my 1st and 2nd Guide Dogs, two yellow labs I loved very much. Adel’s really a Dalmatian covered in soot hiding from Cruella! At Disney World, I protect her from Cruella! Adel naps at my feet while I say “WHEE!” as the plane takes off! Adel cheers for me at races. She goes shopping, to movies, rock climbing, kayaking, swimming, canoeing, dancing, and to doctors with me. I feed her, groom her, and take her to the vet. I throw balls for her! People love to meet Adel and ask me questions. Adel naps while I’m on Facebook
