All Melissa Millet wanted as a child was a dog, but it wasn’t possible at the time. But once she grew up, she made up for lost time by not only getting her own dog, but becoming a trainer too, getting so good she began going on tour. After leaving one performance, she was in a terrible car accident and her dog Butters was killed. Hoping to help Melissa in her grief, a dog shelter offered her a new dog, Lollipop. There was only one problem—Lollipop was deaf. But instead of letting that stop her, Melissa found a way to take that seeming disadvantage and turn it into a beautiful, and record-breaking, strength.
