We introduced you to Sarah Wheaton in 2014, when she so bravely shared her story of living with narcolepsy with the world. In her story that aired on the Today Show, you may recall her dog, Sage, was right by her side. Sage is a service dog Sarah received through a local non-profit organization, Glad Wags. On the blog today, we're sharing more about Sarah and Sage's special relationship and how Glad Wags works to place rescued dogs trained as service dogs to help people in need. http://www.oklahomaheart.com/blog/service-dog-invisible-disability#.VOtirsY7it8
