About the Author

Putting the Ability in Disability

"I thought becoming physically ill meant I had to give up every dream I ever had. Not only has my service dog, Henry helped me to follow my dreams but also regain the independence I once lost. Together we are educating the world on the lives of working dogs and their handlers." 

Jessica Paulsen



From grown adults to newly speaking toddlers, Jessica and her dog, Henry, get questions everywhere they go, "Why do you need him? What job does he do? Is it okay if I pet him?" Jessica knew the more people she could teach about service dogs meant better accessibility and understanding of the kind of work that dogs can do for differently-abled people. But trying to explain to a 5-year old that Henry is working even when he is just standing by her side, can be difficult.


Henry the Helper follows the story of how Henry became a service dog and the ups and downs he faced to get there.  From being chosen as a puppy to finally earning his vest, it wasn't always easy. but he was up to the challenge.

Henry the Helper.jpg
Blue vintage rustic aged painted wooden

These paws have traveled thousands of miles
Across oceans
Through forests
Over mountain tops 
And cliffs
But on the days when those adventures are long gone 
And the room is dark
My hands too weak to caress your fur
Not knowing when you’ll explore again
Those same paws are by my side
Teaching me to enjoy each day
Whatever the day brings

Jessica Paulsen
