My sissy went into labor late Saturday night and mom took me to the hospital. She was sent home, but mom thought she better stay with sissy because she was in early labor. Well, mom and sissy were only back at the apartment for about 2 hours when they had to get to the hospital "again".
I was the 1st Service Dog team allowed in the Delivery Room at St. Joseph's Hospital. It was also the 1st for the Nurse and Midwife to have a Service Animal present during a delivery. Mom put me in a down/stay in the corner. I never moved - I just slept and slept. All of sudden it was just over 3 hrs later and I hear this BABY CRYING!! I looked up because I didn't hear any baby in the room when I went to sleep.
Well, my sissy had a baby boy - 7 lbs 1 oz - 19 1/2 inches long - born at 6:39 AM - July 29, 07. Name is: James Luciano Cantellano. The staff gave my mom a huge congrats on having the most behaved dog in the whole wide world.
I now set the standard for other Service Teams that will come after me.
