To say that the addition of a service dog has changed the lives of J.P., Paige and I would be an understatement.
Earlier this week, Paige said she was at first hesitant about getting one but now wishes she had done it years ago.
As another group of families reaches the halfway point of their team training at Canine Companions for Independence, preparations are underway for this year’s DogFest Walk ‘n Roll to raise funds to get more service dogs to those who need them.
Team J.P. is putting together a group to walk at the Orlando event on Nov. 9 at the University of Central Florida Memory Mall from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Many of you have followed this blog from the beginning when we learned we would be getting a service dog in May.
We were amazed at the dedication of the staff to finding the perfect dog for J.P.’s needs, and equally amazed at how committed the staff was to make sure the recipients and facilitators were prepared to take the dogs home and ready to give them the best chance for success.
Please consider joining Team J.P. in person to walk. Well-behaved pet dogs are also welcome to come. You can read more details by clicking here.
If you can’t make the event, but would like to help change the lives of others with disabilities who need a service dog, click here to make a donation.
I’m sure it will be a tail-waggin’ good time at the event and can’t wait to watch J.P. and Karina give back to an organization that has made such a difference in our lives.
