Amy And I were excited to take the morning off work to visit our favorite students and staff members, treating them to a short demonstration of my skills. During the Demo Amy talked about and showed how I help her be more independent in her day to day life. We showed how I can pick up dropped items: keys, a piece of paper, and my leash. I also had fun showing off by tugging a laundry basket. Amy also talked about some of the other ways I can help her like: getting the phone, helping her out of her couch,and pulling open doors.
After our demo we were delighted to learn that the school had beat last year's fundraising total. This year they raised $800 in Change for Change! Wolf's Crossing, you've become great friends and we love you. Amy and I can't thank you enough for your unwavering support of us and of Canine Companions. Your donation will go toward helping to change someone's life! Here are some ways Canine Companions may choose to use the money you raised:
$500 pays for transporting pups to puppy raisers across the country
$200 pays for healthy puppy costs for a pup’s annual check-up
$150 pays for a health screening for a dog entering training
$50 pays for two assistance dogs’ (blue) vests
