CHICAGO (CBS) — Jenny D’Agostino’s dog is not only a service dog, but also her yoga partner.
In a Facebook video, D’Agostino, a Round Lake resident, shows followers her family’s dog, Quinn, joining her for a quick yoga session.
“My dogs love working out with me. They think it’s play time,” she said. “She loves love.”
D’Agostino’s daughter, Taylor, was severely injured in a horseback riding accident. As her daughter started using a wheelchair, D’Agostino was left questioning the next steps to take in the recovery process.
“When tragedy hits, you are in shock,” D’Agostino said.
So when a service dog was recommended to help, she thought, “Why not?”
The family had Quinn trained and got to bring her home in August. Quinn helps Taylor with her day-to-day life, including tasks like picking up her phone or credit card. Since August, Taylor and Quinn have developed a special bond.
“She knows when Taylor is not having a good day,” D’Agostino said. “It’s just unbelievable.
When it comes to Quinn’s love for her new family and participating in yoga, D’Agostino simply believes, “It was meant to be.”
