President's Message:

Vacations! Yes, we all wait for that summer vacation.  But, sometimes, in the world of special needs, it takes extra coordination and planning. This issue focuses on some ideas to streamline the summer trips.

I've also included the next steps in Darby and Delaney's journey to become therapy dogs. This month, it was learning to walk side by side, while paying attention to me and my pace. Hope you enjoy their short video as we take steps each month towards our goals.

Watch Darby & Delaney walking together.
Warm Regards, 
Mary Anne Ehlert, 
President & Founder
