There have been quite a few unforgettable memories in my lifetime that stand out in my head. You know those kinds of memories where you remember every single detail even though years and years have gone by? That’s what I’m talking about. This one particular occurrence happened about ten years ago, and it has completely changed my life for the better.
This is a new video released by SurfDogRicochet that I found very inspiring. It actually brought me to tears. Its like a virtual hug. When you have a few moments, take time to watch this video, and share with anyone who has a dog, or needs a hug!
Our dogs truly teach us so much, if we just listen. The video was created by Ricochet’s mum Judy Fridono.
Pirelli was born into a life of purpose. He was born into a litter of dogs bred specifically to become service dogs. There was just one problem. Pirelli was born without a foot. The Canine Assistants Organization decided that Pirelli had a different lot in life. He would attend schools in the Georgia area and teach kids that disabilities don’t limit who you are as a person. Such a beautiful message.
Because Pirelli is growing, he needs constant care for his prosthetic. Please donate if you can here.
Here’s a full version of the story from The Daily Mail.
Best of Luck to Pirelli and the Canine Assistants Organization.
I know I re-blogged this awhile back, but the puppies are getting more active, and everyone needs to experience this cuteness. The Warrior Canine Connection is an organization that trains Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to train service dogs that will be paired with other Veterans.
Holly’s half dozen is a litter of Golden Retriever puppies that are going to be trained to be service dogs. They are growing quickly, and this post will be removed when the cam is taken down. Please check it out to make your heart overflow with joy!! There truly is nothing more adorable than golden retriever puppies!! Click on the link and Enjoy! Before time runs out.
Update: Puppy Cam is no more, they have grown up and moved to their training homes. I plan to post an update soon.
I really hope they catch the sick, twisted individual who did this…
Near Barstow and Broadway around 9:45 Friday night, a Golden Retriever service dog was struck and killed by a hit and run motorist in Waukesha, Wisconson. This seriously troubles me.
According to MSNBC.com Debbie Shultz was taking a walk with her service dog Lexie, and attempted to cross the street, when a cream or light colored 1993-1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with plates containing the numbers “22.” struck and killed the dog and crushed Debbie’s foot. The vehicle is likely to have damage to the passenger side.
Lexie was a gift from Debbie’s late husband four days before he was killed in a car accident. Lexie helped Debbie with her anxiety. “He was really the only family I had after my husband left, my kids are all grown up, and she’s all I had,” said Schultz.

P.S. I would love to see a picture of Lexie….
