International Assistance Dog Week

This week is International Assistance Dog Week (IADW).  IADW was created to recognize of all the devoted, hardworking assistance dogs helping individuals mitigate their disability-related limitations.  Though I am not an Assistance Dog, I know several including very good friend Carma Poodale.

Good friend Carma Poodale helps Oz the Terrier celebrate International Assistance Dog Week
                 
Carma is a medical alert/mobility dog for a person who has MS.  She helps brace her human when getting up and down (beds, seats) as well as walking from room to room.   Carma can  sense when her human is tired and will nudge her human towards a chair (or someplace where he or she can lean).  She also provides reminders when it is time to take medication. Like all mobility dogs, Carma is also able to pull a wheel chair , fetch a cane and retrieve dropped items.

Walk for a Dog on National Mutt Day

Today is National Mutt Day.  Established by Pet Expert and Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige, it is a day to celebrate mixed breed dogs and to raise awareness of the millions of mutts in shelters who are waiting for their forever home.

Oz the Terrier uses Walk for a Dog app to support National Mutt Day, July 31

If you, or someone you know, is looking for a loving, healthy companion, today is the day to strongly encourage them to visit their local shelter and hopefully adopt their new, mixed breed best friend!  If you cannot adopt, then please consider supporting your local shelter, and all the mutts there, by donating food, supplies, money or your time as a volunteer.
