Kona Service Dog

kona kin
Labrador Retriever
Female
No

I am a service dog, I was certified and graduated on August 10 2011. I can do the laundry, open and close doors, get money from an ATM cash machine, get items from the fridge or cupboard, pay for items when shopping, flush the toilet, pick up items that are dropped, turn on and off lights, push automatic door and elevator buttons, alert to seizures, get the phone, call 911, take off shoes, socks and gloves... I have a 4 PAWS up Charity which raises money and awareness for cancer causes. I have a facebook following under Kona Kronicles the Making of a Service dog. I have buttons with my face on them and wrist bands I have adopted and fostered including nursed a feral orphaned kitten and an orphaned visually impaired Newfoundland puppy. I have also adopted 5 Pheasant chicks and a bunch of baby chickens, I even began lactating to nurse them though I had not had puppies of my own. I live on a lake with 150 acres of wooded trails as my backyard, I love to swim, chew my bone, play ball and I LOVE to visit the oncology department with my mom. When I go there I wear pink sunglasses which indicate to me that I can be patted and visit while working....I love love love people especially children, elderly and people who needs nurturing. I am a Natural Nurturer if something needs to be loved I am on it. I saved my human momma's life, she had a seizure and had fallen from her wheel chair and I got her help...

Sweet Kona, if ever there was a candidate for "Grown Up Puppy of the Day", it would be you! What a wonderful girl you are. So clever, and oh so loving. Kudos to 4 Paws Up for all the work being done. Your pink sunglasses are adorable, as in your lovely Bandana. Labs have a love that knows no bounds. Long may you run! Big hugs from Oliver & Henry, and their Mum, in London, Ontario.

As a Moderator, I often don't have time to comment on all the lovely dogs I see, but sweet Kona, you deserve TWO comments. Please ask your human to submit you for Puppy of the Day, as we have two categories; one for the babies, and one for the older "puppies" such as yourself. You are absolutely beautiful, inside and out, and God Bless you for saving your Mummy! Oliver & Henry's Mum, London, Ontario. (You remind me of my Lab, Sally 1990-2003). xo

Seeing everything else you can do, this picture is 100% believable! Kona, you are an INCREDIBLE dog, more than words can convey. No biscuits to give? Well, a kiss will have to do. :-*

Kona The Magnificent! You bring tears to my eyes for the beauty of you that God created. Angels? They come in all forms! Oliver and Henry's Mum is so right, you should be Dog of the Day, Month, Year! Labs rule, too! All of your photos are 'da bomb'! How silly of me! I love what you are cooking in the oven!

WOW! We are humbled by all your wonderful comments...Never in my wildest dreams did I think so many wonderful people would visit my profile and share comments this quickly and such beautiful comments they are. My Momma's lookers are leaking...it has been a rough road the last little while for my momma with her health and we are mostly between Oncology and doctors appointments so our online friends make the world of difference and keep us smiling :) especially when they appreciate me as much as my momma does! Thank You for making our day so special what a wonderful thing to see the moment we go online !!! WOOF 4 PAWS UP

Oliver and Henry's Mom we live in Ontario as well!!!! Actually One of momma's medical clinics is out near you....she has to go usually about 2 times a year...OH and I have two Cavalier Family members a niece named Harmony and a Nephew named Ozzie we love Cavaliers they are so lovable and friendly ....hmm is chasing and pouncing on the sun a CKCS thing Ozzie does that too. Thank you for so many nice comments, what a warm feeling you have given us...I will be sure to have momma submit pictures :) I know that for submission people are not to be in the picture but I was wondering if it is acceptable to have people in pictures posted in albums....Momma would like to show me off with my friends and her when In Oncology and visiting patients. Please also if you like join me at my FB page Kona Kronicles The Making of a Service Dog ...Again thank you so much for your wonderful comments and for taking the time to make our day so special

SiobhanOLS- THANK YOU!!! Momma sure does keep me busy in between all of my regular work we have public appearances and fund raisers and photo shoots like the one as a chef....what was most impressive I THINK was that was REAL bacon and SOOOO tempting one even dropped and I retrieved it for momma... It just about took every ounce of self control but I gave it to her ...with the addition of some droolz...Momma took pity on me and let me have a cooked piece once the photo shoot was done..that photo will hopefully be the cover for a canine cookbook to raise funds for canine rescues, Momma is hoping to get some others involved in putting it together I am a bit of a ham and when momma says Pose and points I look in the direction she wants and freeze the position and face...where there is a camera there are treats...I'm no fool BOL

You can do so many things! I wish I had a dog like you! How can you do all of that stuff? I'm even terrible at doing laundry. You're so cute. You probably get cuter every second. Which is hard to believe, because you already get 100% for cuteness! Anyway, you are a one of a kind dog, and your owner is so lucky to have you. Good luck in the future!

@lovertoanimals Thank You, my tasks except for a few very specific ones my mom trained me to do are pretty standard for Service Dogs but my willingness to learn and to please makes me such a happy working dog that it shows and I glow. I love what I do and I was born for it, mom trains a lot of dogs to do many things but she says when one like me comes along, who literally lives for service and to please a star is born. :) 4 PAWS UP
