After two months of living as a nameless yet lovable canine, our Service Dog finally has a name—thanks to one Lipreading Mom reader. And the winning name for our furry friend is…
Congratulations to Monica Hood from Ohio for suggesting the name SERVANE which, she writes, means “service of God.”
My 8-year-old daughter, who owns the Service Dog, saw that name and announced, “Mom, that’s my favorite.” The very close runner-up, according to my daughter: ANGEL, recommended by Tina Willoughby of Georgia. In appreciation of your efforts and because this was such a close race, I am sending both Monica and Tina e-book versions of my novel, Lip Reader.
Why Does Our Service Dog Deserve a Name?
When my daughter’s Christmas present arrived from American Girl, it was love at first sight. The plush chocolate brown stuffed animal wore a royal blue vest and sturdy leash. This precious dog was touted as a service animal by American Girl. I personally know people who are blind, deaf-blind, or have mobility issues who own a service dog. Every pet who serves others in this way is worthy of recognition and honor.
Our furry friend thanks you for helping finally giving him a name. (Ruff! Ruff!)
