Strut your mutt and the mascot bowl

We had a great weekend. We were at strut your mutt and met a lot of wonderful people. Everyone fell in love with Stella McCoy and Fritz. They are three of the service dogs in training with salt lake k9. We loved seeing all of the dogs and meeting their owners. Tonight we were able to be at the mascot bowl at Lehi high school. It was so much fun. The kids that were there LOVED Stella! She is such a good dog. We met a lot of people who were interested in the cause and donated towards other children with autism getting a dog. We met a couple of children with autism tonight and they were drawn to Stella. Cameron didn't want us to take Stella without him, it would have been to much for him there. Hopefully the more comfortable he gets with Stella, the more he will be okay to be around large groups of people. We have a lot of pictures of this weekend that we will post soon. Thanks for following us and would love you to leave a comment.

Midnight Mirage

We had a GREAT time the other night at the Midnight Mariage student recitle. Every year they hold a raffle and give it to a charity. This year they decided to donate the money to the Paws for the Cause Autism Service Dogs. They were able to raise $350.00 to go towards the foundation. It was such a good night. The dancers were amazing and they all got to meet Stella and see why we are doing what we are doing. Thanks to Heather and Midnight Mirage, it was so much fun!

Video of Cam and Stella

I know it's been a while..... I would like to share this link, It is a video of Cameron, Stella her trainer and myself talking about why these service/therapy dogs are so important. Cameron is loving Stella more and more each day. He loves taking her for walks. He is very routine oriented so it is the same route every night, but they love it. They run and run in the back yard from the time Cameron gets home until it's time for bed. They both are exhausted when it is bed time. The rest of the family is falling for Stella too. Callie can say her name pretty good and gets so excited to see her. Stella has learned if Callie is eating, she might get a taste too. McCord has been such a big helper in trainig Stella. He is right there with Nate and Ryan learning what to say and how to say it so Stella knows to listen to him. He loves to feed Stella and help take her and Cameron for walks. I have to admit that Stella is by far the best dog we have ever had, we just love her.
