Howdy blogaroos. Squirmy here on another terrific Tuesday. Snow on the ground, bright skies, freezing temperatures – life is good.
We didn’t do anything too exciting since I last wrote. The Warden was home with us ALL day yesterday- so we were exhausted. When she goes out somewhere, we just lounge around and sleep. But when she’s home – we must follow her every move. She gets up – we get up. She opens the refrigerator, we must stick our heads in. She goes in the garage – we must follow to be sure the dog food bin is safely secured. She opens the dishwasher door – we must be sure the plates are correctly stacked and we attempt to do the pre-wash. She goes to the bathroom- we must guard the door so no one else goes in. Not that there’s anyone else to go in, but it’s good practice. She goes anywhere near the coat closet – we go crazy assuming it means we are all going out. It’s exhausting when she’s home all day. I hope she runs errands today so we can catch up on our sleep!
OK- we have a very cool good news story to share. It’s about a young woman named Mackenzie. The Warden knows her Mom – and lots of people around here know Mackenzie because she’s a very special young lady…
Mackenzie is in Grade 12 and she has lots of hobbies and interests. One of Mackenzie’s hobbies is photography – she particularly loves taking photos of flowers. Mackenzie has become so good at photography, that people like to buy her photos. She sells cards and calendars with her photos. And here’s the neat thing….. you see, Mackenzie has had some health challenges, and she has spent time at our local Children’s Hospital. So do you know what she has done with the money from the photo sales? She has donated proceeds to the Hospital! She’s been doing it for years and years – and has raised over $20,000. How awesome is that?!
They say that when you do good deeds for others, it will come back to you in unexpected ways. In this case – it is in the form of a black Labrador Retriever….
Several years ago, Mackenzie applied to get a special Service Dog to help with her health challenges and with her independence. It took quite a bit of time – but in December. Mackenzie finally got word that a match had been made.
Makenzie and Ginny have been together since January- and their bond is already super strong. Mackenzie’s mother says this has been a rewarding and incredible experience for Mackenzie and the whole family. More than they ever even imagined.
I hope you are able to open one of these links – one is for Facebook and the other is for Instagram. I don’t need to explain a thing – the video says it all.
I believe you call that a perfect match. We wish Mackenzie and Ginny many, many years of happy adventures. It looks like are off to a really great start!
Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe!
