Why Blogging is Special

Right around Christmas we received something special in the mail...
 To our surprise, a donation to the Search Dog Foundation had been made on behalf of Harlow and Monty!
How awesome is this?
Becky and I are Facebook friends, sharing a mutual love of Friesian horses. 
I love the team bio.
I wish I could describe the happiness I feel when we get cards like this, to know our pups, two little dogs with a blog, mean so much to folks that rescues and organizations benefit from it.  I am truly humbled by this generosity.

If you would like to learn more about Search Dog Information, click here.  Their website is fun, with a photo gallery of some of the work they have done, information on their teams, and additional ways to donate (you can sponsor a dog!).  Becky and Gary have worked with this organization for over 25 years.

Becky and Gary, thank you so much!

  17. Those search dogs are so very special. I would like to be a search dog, but I took a nosework class and I couldn't find a hotdog in a box!

  18. What a lovely gift. It's great to know how your stories have touched other people.

  19. I remember how it felt when someone anonymously gave a similar gift in memory of Twix. It is one of the sweetest and most touching things they could do. It tells you how much you are touching others through the blog of your dogs.
