I wrote up a press release on Wednesday and sent it off, not expecting to hear anything for a week or so, but instead got a call right away from John and the KTVZ news station. John came out yesterday afternoon and by 5, we were on the news. I am so excited to get started but at the same time, it seems like such a long ways off-but I have to start somewhere and every day without an alert dog is a potential day of damage.
Stryder has had quite a few speech problems today as well as language; he had a seizure last night and I suspect that it may have been due to that. The seizure he had was one I could see, I just make sure he is safe and let them happen. It’s the silent ones that really scare me; we can’t see them, nor can we see the hurt they cause.
I wanted to also say “Thank you” to all the people that have donated, even the $10 and $5 make huge difference. We are on our way to reaching our goal and it couldn’t be done without the help of the great community. I am not able to see the ones who mail anything in until after the 15th or 1st so if I do not say thank you, please understand that I will make sure to send a note as soon as I can. Stryder is a trooper as usual and is looking forward to sleeping on his own when he gets his new pal
