Warming Up to Intimacy as an Interabled Couple

We were surprised to find that for us it was much more than what one may think, taking a shape that we've enjoyed sharing with each other for over a year and a half. Here we'll share our journey toward intimacy.

From Puppy to Service Dog

From Puppy to Service Dog

As a quad-amputee, I use a power wheelchair to get around. Recently I purchased a goldendoodle puppy who I've named Ollie. Contrary to what he may think, Ollie isn't merely a puppy. Eventually, he'll be my service dog. Though we are currently pretty far away from that phase in our lives, I'm already planning for that future. I'd like to offer a bit of insight into our experiences. Typically, service dogs are chosen for people. Since my approach is a bit different, I'd like to serve as a resource for other people with disabilities who may be in a similar situation.
