Hello patient followers:
It has been a busy winter and I can’t wait to tell you about: Christmas at Fenway, a new addition to Bentley University …and about being Santa at Greenfield Community College’s holiday party and wish you a happy new year. I can do that really fast- Happy New Year. The rest will have to wait until after….
this Sunday,January 21st
Because I will be in the Inaugural Parade with 56 CCI assistance dogs and dogs-in-training! Dream come true for Canine Companions- could be better than winning the World Series (if it happened more often). I know that Governor and Mrs. Patrick have a fine lab- perhaps we can all have a sit down while we are all in town to discuss some issues small and large like: covering service dogs for military vets with PTSD, health care, gun violence, and that silly trillion-dollar coin (they are all serious as a cliff- “the” cliff, but the coin has to be a joke from a Saturday Night Live skit that the news got confused with a real story).
Here is some information about the parade before I float too off track:
2013 Presidential Inaugural Parade on January 21st in Washington DC.
CCI is one of 43 organizations from across the nation selected for this honor from over 2,800 applicants. 134 CCI assistance dog teams, puppy raising families, volunteers and supporters will march in the parade, along with 57 assistance dogs and dog-in-training, which will be viewed by millions across the globe.
“The President has placed a big emphasis on the idea of service – including a National Day of Service as part of the inaugural tradition – and many of the groups chosen to march in the parade reflect the idea of serving one another and giving back to the community”, according to the Presidential Inaugural Committee.
Take a look at the News 9 coverage and story (WUSA9.com in case the link doesn’t work):
More later…hope you will be watching the parade.
thanks for following,
Fenway the Dog
Even Hurricane Sandy cant keep me from coming to town this week to see my friends. I will be handing out some treats at Halloween at Fenway (please come), and blowing around town giving some Fenway the Dog Treats to dog-friendly businesses. We landed some at Angell Memorial last week for their Hall of Fame Dinner and for their Pit Bull Spay/Neuter clinic. (if you go there, I can’t promise it will still be hanging on the letter d…but please go visit them and their adoption center while you are there…tell them I sent you).
Not to be a tattle tail but, some dog friendly places I know of for starters are: Fast Frame in Washington Square in Brookline Village. Hsui-Lan, the owner, always has her greyhound in the store, and recently coordinated a dog-friendly community Wag-A-Thon, Serenella on Newbury Leslee the owner raises lots of money for animal support organizations, of course Fairmont Copley Plaza where my pal Catie Copley lives (she almost always in the lobby meeting and greeting)…I am giving them all some treats for being so nice. There are tons more- please feel free to write me and be a dog-friendly dog catcher. Nothing makes me more happy than to see a nice water bowl outside of a place of business. Why is it that people are so worried about touching public bathroom door handles while we are sharing slobber and drinking out of toilets? I am not saying that God likes us more….but don’t you think it is remarkable that we can eat some gross dead thing we find on a walk, while humans get sick from a slightly old bologna sandwich?
In case you are a high school senior and looking for a dog friendly place- Bentley University might soon be dog friendly…and have some Canine Companions puppies on campus being raised (just as i am doing at Greenfield Community College)! It is nice of them to also have Canine Companions blue and yellow colors like we do. Stay tuned for more on that.
See you around Boston this week!
