Debbie Walrod was an athletic young Californian, a former professional model, and a ballerina, until a rare blood
infection resulted in her having both her legs and all of her fingers amputated. 43 Then, through a program called
Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), Walrod was matched with Oregon, a service dog, and her life became
charged with possibility once more. CCI was created in 1977 by Bonita Bergin, a teacher who specialized in helping
students who were physically challenged because of injury or disease. Bergin knew that guide dogs had provided
invaluable assistance to blind people. 44 Professional dog trainers were, for the most part, discouraging.
However, Bergin did receive the support of health-care professionals who, up until that point, had been unable to do
little more than commiserate with clients frustrated by their physical defects.
Although she worked out her home with helpers who accepted little or no pay, training costs were high so
monetary problems became an issue. 45 At the same time, Bergin found it impossible to train older dogs, but
young Labradors and golden retrievers were fit to be trained. Within fifteen years of the creation of CCI, more than a
dozen similar organizations were established. 46
(A)Therefore, Bergin solicited and received financial help from believers in her project.
(B)Prospects for an active, fulfilling, and independent future seemed to be grim.
(C)She wondered if it would be possible to train dogs to perform various tasks for people with other disabilities.
(D)One example of such a non-profit organization is Paws for a Cause.
