assistance dawgs rock

i’m a little late in the uptake – but i just found out this week is:

!!International Assistance Dog Week!!

it was started to recognize all the devoted, hardworking assistance dogs helping individuals mitigate their disability related limitations.

the goals of IADW are to:
recognize and honor assistance dogs
raise awareness and educate the public about assistance dogs
honor puppy raisers and trainers
recognize heroic deeds performed by assistance dogs in our communities

talk about inspiring pups – LEXI has a long way to go!! – Ricochet is kicking some mayja butt in the awesomeness department:

      I like how the trainer showed that Ricochet didn’t have to ‘become’ the exact assistance dog she was aiming for, and the pup is still making a big difference in people’s lives – too cool!
