I'm sure you have realize from reading my blog that I have become the helping hands and legs for Joe and have allowed him to achieve more than he may have ever thought possible. Things that you may take for granted, like opening a door or picking up dropped keys, can be difficult or impossible for Joe. With me at his side, he no longer has to ask someone else for help.
Denise, Joe and I are participating in our second annual DogFest Walk 'n Roll Columbus on 10/12/2013, a community dog walk that supports the mission of Canine Companions for Independence. Founded in 1975, Canine Companions is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities (like Joe) by providing highly-trained assistance dogs (like yours truly) and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships--free of charge.
Denise and Joe are personally committed to raising money by walking (and rolling) so that we can get more of these amazing assistance dogs--just like me--into the lives of those who need it most. Denise and Joe are asking their friends and family to help them meet their fundraising goal by making an online donation in support of this most worthy organization. It's really easy--just click the below link to be transferred to their pledge page. Thanks in advance for your support!
