President's Message: Its a Dog Life!
Those of you who know me well know I'm a real dog person. I have two wonderful (and sometimes pretty rambunctious) white golden retrievers, Delaney and Darby. Over the years, I have gotten to know their breeder Judy Emerson pretty well. One day she called to tell me about a young girl in Wisconsin with a disability who needed a companion dog. She wondered how I could help. And that is how I got involved with Jake Guell, a dog trainer with a big heart. It is how I learned the difference a dog can make in the life of a person with a disability.
We at Protected Tomorrows helped support the mission of Tails for Life, and many of you may remember when Charlie the Service Dog visited us at the Protected Tomorrows Corporate Offices to show us her magic. It was amazing to watch her pick up dropped phones and bring Kleenex to the audience members who sneezed!
In this issue, we will get some tips on how and why to consider a Service Dog for your family member. Enjoy!!
