Whoever said that diamonds were a girl's best friend didn't have a dog! Service Dog Grace has been Jewel's constant companion and helper for almost five years. Grace helps with tasks around the house and also assists Jewel with her physical and speech therapy sessions. In fact, Jewel's speech has improved dramatically since receiving Grace. Jewel not only says "I love you Gracie," but she even reminds her family when it's time to feed Grace and take her outside! With her improved speech, Jewel is now learning to give more commands to Grace and their bond continues to grow stronger every day.
