My birthday is coming up next week, and I want to do something a bit different here on my blog. I am going to give a blogging friend a “reverse” birthday gift. I also want to raise awareness about assistance dogs.
"Until Tuesday" is a book about a wounded Iraqi war veteran and the golden retriever who saved him. The author possesses some different political beliefs than I do. But I greatly appreciate the sacrifices he has made for our country, and I admire the strides he has taken to live independently and try to find peace after his painful experiences. And I also applaud his adorable assistance dog, Tuesday, who has been instrumental in helping him along his life’s journey.
Most folks think assistance dogs are for those individuals who have visual impairments. However, these well-trained companions serve people with a wide range of issues, including hearing impairments, physical disabilities, autism, and seizure disorders. These special dogs provide independence and dignity for their human friends. One of our primary charities is Paws with a Cause, which provides training and placement of assistance dogs throughout the country. We are proud of the work that they do and take heart in the lives that have been forever changed for the better.
With deep gratitude for successfully completing another year in my life’s journey, I am going to give away a copy of “Until Tuesday”. Consider it my birthday gift to a friend. The last day to enter is Sunday, June 26
