Scouting at Fenway
Dogs always love parks…but I am particularly attracted to The Park. I took a trip in to Boston this week to check on the turf*, and met my friends from the Girl Scouts, Canine Companions and Clear Channel, to have some photos taken for a billboard. Spoiler alert in case you would like to be surprised during one of your upcoming commutes this month. Here is a hint at least: we have all cooked up a special surprise with the help of Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, Canine Companions for Independence, Eukanuba (big giveaway) and the mighty Red Sox….it will be a real treat and will raise money, awareness & make tails wag. Great way to celebrate the 100th birthdays of Fenway Park and the Girl Scouts. By the way, I was reading Juliette Gordon Low’s biography (Founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA)- I think you should too- she was a remarkable person. In case you don’t have time to read it now, I will point out that the Girl Scouts were ahead of the game a century ago as they welcomed girls with disabilities at a time when they were excluded from many activities. Mrs. Low did not let deafness, or serious health problems stand in the way of her life or service to others. When I grow up, I will be able to do important work like my friend Frontier in the photo….extra bonus that he gets to assist a Girl Scout who is in turn helping others!
thanks for reading,
