Harlow the service dog knows how to put away laundry, get a water bottle from the fridge and close the door, put dishes in the dishwasher, pick up dropped objects, get groceries from the bottom shelf and many other tasks.
Her 20-year-old owner, Jaquie Blake suffers from postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) -- a disorder of the autonomic nervous system. She experiences migraines, narcolepsy, dizziness and frequent fainting.
Without Harlow Blake could not leave the house, let alone function as a college student studying to be an occupational therapist.
Over a year ago, Blake started an Instagram account to track her service dog’s progress. Today, they have more than 70,000 followers -- and climbing.
Instagram users have been watching Harlow the Golden Retriever grow from an eager pup into a service dog.
