Sir Chip of Munk "Alvin" Simonick, a 4-year-old English Labrador from Stevens Point, has taken his job to the next level. Alvin holds a very important role in his owner's life as a service dog and companion.
His owner, Ron Simonick, has a medical condition which limits his mobility significantly. Alvin's "job duties" include: retrieving dropped objects, turning light switches on/off, bringing tools and other items and of course being his constant companion.
"But this is not the most remarkable thing about Alvin," says Alvin's veterinarian Dr. Diane Scott of Oakview Veterinary Medical Center.
