I decided to search in the internet for interesting dog news this morning, and I found this uplifting story. It is about a program called "Pets for Vets" which matches shelter dogs with veterans who could benefit from having a loving and dedicated companion. If you want to read more stories about dogs that they have placed, check out their website, www.pets-for-vets.com.
Here's another good one about helping shelter dogs get adopted, this time locally. Carolyn Craft, a real estate agent with Windermere, has been helping to promote the Tacoma/Pierce County Animal Shelter's "Adoptable Pet of the Week."
One last tidbit of news: A group in Bonney Lake was just granted a one year trial lease to begin operating an off-leash dog park at Viking Park. You can follow Updates and get involved by checking out at their website.
One last link, and this time to us! The next training class and seminar have been scheduled. The "Balanced and Calm" seminar is going to be Sunday August 1st from 11am-12:30pm. The next round of Basic Obedience is going to be June 29th to July 15th, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:15pm-8:15pm. Dogs do not have to be Fort Fido members to attend, they just need to show that they are up to date on their shots. If you have friends with dogs, be sure to point us out!
Have a great weekend everyone!
