Smart Pup for Poppy

My name is Poppy and I am four years old and I have Rett Syndrome!

I love playing outside in the wind with my brothers. I love to sway along to The Beatles and it always makes me smile. I also have Rett Syndrome. This means that I can’t use my hands very well and I’m very unsteady on my feet. I also have seizures, sleeping problems and I can’t speak. Telling my mum and dad why I’m sad is impossible for me but their cuddles help. Now I have learnt to answer yes / no questions with my eyes my life is getting a little easier. A smart pup can help me get around, open doors for me and pick up the things I drop all the time. It might also let my parents know when I’m going to have a seizure and will comfort me when I need some extra love.
