The Power of Dogs

Posted on: June 15, 2011

We just had to share this story about a young boy who is fighting to take his service dog to school with him.  This reminds us so much of our beloved Harp, the wonderful Canine Companion who helped Marybeth for a decade with loyalty, earnestness, and yes, the cutest dog-face ever.  Harp was a member of Canine Companions for Independence, a fantastic organization that provides service animals for people with disabilities.  Service animals really do help with things like picking up hard-to-reach items and opening doors, but they also provide invaluable companionship.  We hope that with brave kids like Caleb fighting to make people understand the power of the canine, we’ll eventually see service animals everywhere!

Maybe in the sequel, Arlene should get a canine companion…

See what I mean? Harp--loyal, earnest, cute face

(And now you know why Arlene’s last name is Harper–a little known fact!)

I love Harp!

Cats too (or any companion animal) seems helpful, but dogs are the best for unconditional positive regard. Nice post!
