We have some more photos to show you from our fun meet ups yesterday with the Canine Companions Jacksonville Puppy Outing Group .
This trip was a learning experience as all travel is, and a challenging adventure for us, but most of all, it was a rewarding chance to help raise awareness for this great organization. The Canine Companions volunteers , graduates and staffers from west to east, who took the time to make contact with us and to help us in our endeavor, and who do such good work for the dogs and the graduates, really motivated us as we rode each day. Thank you all!
Lastly, for anyone who has been inspired to donate to this great organization which provides these highly trained assistance dogs to its graduates free of charge, please let us know your name and address so that we can personally thank you. Canine Companions will of course acknowledge your donation but we might not be aware of what you’ve done and we do want to express our appreciation too.
The photos of the Canine Companions “welcome committee ” at the end of our ride are from Tom and Janci, and then last night we were hosted at dinner by Jacksonville POG members and very active Canine Companions volunteers Tonda and Lee Hoyt. A lovely conclusion to a great day!
