A poem for Riley, by Freddie
Dear Human and other Beings,
Riley is adopting Lydia.If you can help my friend Riley it would be very nice. Lydia was a member of the armed forces when she suffered a head injury in a crash.
Lydia has ferrets whose job is to entertain her.
Riley’s job will be to help Lydia be more independent.
Riley will help Lydia when she is overloaded by sensory input. He’ll learn to remind her to take medication, how to balance her when vertigo hits her and help her be more involved in living life.
His training is expensive and he’s very smart like me. Riley, it appears, is all poodle. I’m part poodle. I’m very smart, even the part that isn’t poodle.
There’s an online fundraising project to raise some of the expenses to train Riley.
Thank you for Riley,
Freddie Parker Westerfield, CDT
