For the last 12 years, we have spent every day reading labels and monitoring her surroundings. Sometimes that is not enough. Even visiting a friend's house, Julia slipped off her shoe and stepped on a crumb of Peanut Butter Captain Crunch and her foot swelled up like a balloon. We can never be too safe.
That is where we need help. Julia is now a teenager that needs some independence and a guardian angel. We recently met with someone who trains peanut detection dogs, like narcotics dogs, to be service dogs for people with life-threatening peanut and tree nut allergies. The trainer has an opening for a dog for Julia if we can raise the money quickly and locate the breed we need - an Australian Labradoodle or Standard Poodle, due to their hypoallergenic properties. This is an almost two year process to get a puppy and have it fully trained and certified as a peanut detection dog.
