sierra-bland.JPGView full sizeGus Chan, The Plain DealerWhen 11-year-old Sierra Bland of Medina had colon surgery at Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital, her service dog, Ferris, was there to help ease her anxiety.

Sierra Bland had everything she needed to recuperate after doctors at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital removed most of her nonfunctional colon: an IV drip, respirator and Ferris, her service dog.

Eleven-year-old Sierra was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder at age 4. The yellow Labrador retriever has been with her since mid-June and has proven invaluable in helping her feel secure, maintain her calm and boost her confidence.

 

"Her total demeanor has changed," says Bill Bland, Sierra's father.

PD gonna sue you!

PD gonna sue you! - Stealing their content again... even their pictures... you'd better watch out... and you aren't supposed to do that here (Lily, you are supposed to be working on this...).

I posted the whole Funk article about MCCO with my interpretation of that, making my part original - I included Funk's article because it is a public health matter - an exception - and if they complain we'll need to take it down... but for now we need to make sure all citizens of the region are informed about that...

We can't do that with every dog story in town (I got 11 dogs writing storied here right now...).

You need to make your postings personal in some way - you can't just copy the content of others onto realNEO as your own - you lock it in to your account as yours by posting it here (remember you own all the content you put on realNEO, so it had better not be owned by someone else).

Link - and make everything you put on the home page YOURS and ORIIGINAL in full or through your interpretation... like on YouTube... can't just post other people's songs without making it into your video

Homework for Guy

Guy, I see that you found this story that I told you about, which is a touching story. 

You should edit this story to include your own personal experience with Yogi, like how you never go anywhere without Yogi, how Yogi makes you feel ( security, anxiety reducer, friend, etc.,) , how Yogi protects and warns you, and that Yogi is all that you have.  Make it personal to yourself.  Include a picture of Yogi, etc.  Tell us about Yogi and how he helps you daily.

This will make it legal and your OWN story, not someone else's.  You have the ability to do this, so do it!!!

Homework deadline 6:00 p.m. today. 

When I get home from work, it would be nice to see your homework done, or else you will get Catianad- by ME.

Just go to the title of your blog, hit enter, edit key on top right. Then get busy.  :)

You seem like the management type

You seem like the management type - you should run for realNEO Commissioner. I think you can keep the bad boys in line.
