March is Brain Injury Awareness Month and in this months K9 for Warriors spotlight we got a little update on Adam, who suffered a traumatic brain injury, and Blaze.
Kris and I were thrilled and honored to attend the graduation ceremony for Blaze and Adam last evening.
Adam is a Veteran of the US Army and a super nice young man who was so very appreciative of the role we (everyone who donated to my AT hike and everyone who followed along) played in uniting him with Blaze.
Blaze is a super cool hound dog/lab mix…they think! For you older folks, he reminded me of the Clampett’s hound in Beverly Hillbillies and should be a perfect fit at home with Adam in KY.
We, with friends Art and Janice Hayden, were able to meet with Adam and Blaze as well as Adam’s family before the ceremony. Pretty emotional for all of us.
It is so rewarding to see the results of your donations and support up close and personal. We rescued Blaze from a shelter and your support will cover all vet bills, etc. forever.
We also provided a valuable tool to help Adam and his family move forward with his rehabilitation.
I have been waffling on whether to raise donations again next summer on the Camino. Last night decided it.
How about we sponsor another K9 and Warrior? I can do the walking and I’ll try to blog regularly…
I hope you are all proud of the good we did for K9’s For Warriors, Sun Dial Manor, and Down Syndrome. I know that I am very proud of you.
On behalf of Blaze, Adam and his family, and Kris and myself….Thanks so much. You are amazing.
