“I’m not weaker because of my disability or because I have a service dog, I’m actually a lot stronger.”

Claire and her service dog, Percie, have always been inseparable — so when it came time for her to attend prom last week, it only made sense that Claire’s faithful pup would dress up and join along, too.

Percie is a medical alert dog, trained to mitigate Claire’s disability by sensing and intervening when a problem begins to arise, allowing her to live a more normal life.
