Dog of the Week
Full Disclosure, our tired brains pulled the wrong dog when we checked our messages before recording, so Wiggles gets to be DotW two weeks running
“How about my Wiggles. He’s a Dachshund/Pomeranian/Jack Russel/Siberian Husky mix. His dad was the Husky, mom was the other mix. We’ve had him since he was conceived & the day he was born, we’d gone to grab dinner. When we got back, our other dog at the time, Charm, was barking her head off, as if to say “HUMANS THERE’S A BABY UP HERE!” He was so tiny and all he could do was wiggle, hence his name. He’ll be 13 years old in April. We almost lost him to mange but he made it through and is my husband’s fluffy sidekick.” – Wiggles’ mom, Desiree
Charity of the Week:
Paws With A Cause
“Paws With A Cause® enhances the independence and quality of life for people with disabilities nationally through custom-trained Assistance Dogs. PAWS® increases awareness of the rights and roles of Assistance Dog Teams through education and advocacy.
In 1979, Michael D. Sapp Sr. and Antoinette (Candye) Sapp founded Paws With A Cause, initially named Ears for the Deaf®. PAWS began when Mike agreed to help a friend. Marty Jansen and his wife, Dianne, are both deaf and had just adopted a young deaf child. Their hope was that Mike could train their Cairn Terrier CRYSTAL to alert them to important sounds such as their baby crying. Mike agreed and soon other deaf and hard of hearing people approached Mike and asked if they could have dogs trained as well.
Through the years PAWS has added additional Assistance Dog programs. PAWS now trains Service Dogs for people with physical disabilities, Seizure Response Dogs for people who have epilepsy, Hearing Dogs for people who are deaf or hard of hearing and Service Dogs for Children with Autism.” – PAWS
