The idea came to them when Ella met another guide dog when she was 4 years old.
It was a turning point. although he had hardly spoken before, she spoke her first words to the animal.
A week after Diamond appeared, Ella became much calmer. Gradually, she was able to free herself from the anxiety and isolation that marked her childhood.
For the mother of the family, this ability of the dog to feel the emotional state of Ella is very important. So much so that it is difficult for her to imagine life without a dog. She even calls the process a “miracle”.
