Winter Pause For More Fall

 

Maybe winter could hold back for a week or so.  Fall is so great…and Sandy blew the good part away (I found one last leaf).

I am so happy that my fellow CCI* pups and family members are safe after having lived through 8 days without power in our training facility on Long Island.  Hope you all will look on the Canine Companions for Independence website…you will be able to see graduation photos.  Also, there is a link to a Eukanuba live puppy cam.  Nothing is cuter than puppies…babies are a distant second, and then, I guess…well…those are the only cute living things that i like.  Kittens maybe.

Treats on Board

Hello to all of the commuters on the Massachusetts Pike! Not only is Frontier (holding the bag) a proud CCI* graduate, but he has hit the road in a photographic way, to promote these special dog treats.  Thanks Clear Channel for helping drivers to focus on something other than the bugs on their windshields as they dream of spring (real spring; not stop-and-start fake spring where one day we are firing up the the slip n slide and the next day the fireplace). In the meantime, think about opening day and also about the dogs in your life.

The Red Sox and Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts wanted to do something to celebrate the 100th birthdays of Fenway Park and the Girl Scouts.  When they come up with something, this would become my second assignment as the Official Service Dog of the Red Sox (blog was first, and they keep getting bigger).  What about: a ‘limited edition Girl Scout Cookie product expansion to include dogs’? That was it- those scouts are geniuses!(LEGSCPETID was too long, so we decided to call them ‘Dog Treats’ and put the information in the bag). It all sounded like a great idea (like seats on top of the Green Monster), but we had to figure out how to do it.  First, we needed the cookies aka the treats….something like the dog equivalent of  Thin Mint.   With the bar set high, CCI went to their friends at Eukanuba (best dog food and treat makers) who said, yes, they wanted to help.  By the way, that sounds easy, but they (at Eukanuba) are a really big company who are owned by even bigger company, Procter & Gamble. Obviously, it turned out well because the big company also has a matching big heart. Second, we needed a keepsake, re-useable eco made in USA to put them in- found it- think you will like it. Lastly, we needed sellers and places to sell- had those: Girl Scouts, Canine Companions, and Fenway Park. You might be able to say ‘no’ to a dog, or to a Girl Scout/Brownie/Daisy….but something is just wrong with you if one of them can’t win you over.  Keep an eye on the website for the rest of the details- I am afraid I will lose you (maybe already did) if I give any more details. Go to: fenwaydogtreats.com… if you forget the website, just jump on the Pike and there it is- written on the billboard. BTW-please get them early in April (a month which starts tomorrow) because we might run out and you might have to wait another 100 years or as long as the Red Sox or Cubs (still waiting) wait for World Series victories.

*don’t get lost- I am going to write “CCI” instead of “Canine Companions for Independence”

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,
