"Ever since getting [Leader Dog Frasier], I've become so much more charismatic and so much more outgoing, and I love to talk to people. I'm part of several student organizations, I write for the newspaper, I have my own radio show, I volunteer, and I don't think I would do that if I didn't have Frasier. It's always hard to explain to people how much he means to me because he means so much!"  - Shannon Columb
