My name is Hesmé Cronjé and I have autism, multiple mental health conditions, a seizure disorder and fibromyalgia. I have had my fair share of challenges regrading my health. I struggle to cross a road by myself, go shopping, communicate and generally functions in a neurotypical society that is not made to accept people with my conditions. There was a time when I would come home from school and cry until I fell asleep. I thought I would never be able to be independent. But my service dog changed that. My service dog gave me confidence. My service dog gave me a chance at “normal”. My service dog gave my hope for a future.


Raindrop Grantleigh entered my life on the 26th of March 2021. He quickly showed me that he was going to be a phenomenal service dog. He was inquisitive, curious, smart, playful, and an all-around delight. I fell in love with him the second I saw him and our bond just continued to grow after that. Soon we started going on adventures together. We’ve done everything from trips to school, white water rafting, going to restaurant, making build-a-bears to going to an aquarium. Just when I think it is impossible for me to love him more he looks at me with those dark brown puppy eyes and I fall in love all over again. But get me wrong though, he is not an angle. I have lost my fair share of shoes and snacks to the sneaky criminal, but that’s part of raising puppies.


Raindrop has been there for me no matter what and I know he will continue you to be there for me come hell or high waters. I found my greatest supporter, my best friend, my partner in crime, my hope and my companion in my service dog.
