Presenting........Elyza, the Cappuchin Monkey!
Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagles unveils their best kept secret: we have a furry little mascot, and no doubt about it, this little monkey is going to captivate you. But this Queen is on a crusade: Elyza will be introducing some Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagles with a special mission in life as Get-A-Wag therapy dogs.
Elyza herself is a service monkey to Rebecca VanMeter's husband Terry who is a head injury survivor of a multiple car crash of several years ago. Two years later in 2006 Elyza came into our lives as a one month old baby and she has done wonders to improve Terry's morale and decrease his pain.
Do we recommend monkeys as service animals? No, we do not, as they are complicated exotic animals that require careful handling. But we enjoy her so much, she is a rewarding part of our lives, and we in turn provide her with an interesting, loving home environment [and she loves our Florida vacations]!
What makes a good service animal? By far and above a devoted, gentle dog excels in that. And the Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagle has a well-suited nature for this higher calling in life. There are several already working in that capacity including Journey, our much-loved family pet. She is a fantastic emotional support dog to Terry and also Elyza! They play very appropriately together and this gives Elyza a warm furry body to hug as well!
