HOPE. I think that is what we all want to see, hear and believe. This year has been like no other, and it has strained just about everything and everyone in every walk of life. Here at B.E.S.T. Service Dogs this last year has been all about PATIENCE. We didn't get a litter of pups when we expected one and since then, we have been waiting for some new arrivals and new chances. We have been working on fundraising, software changes, updating the facilities, and keeping all the dogs happy and healthy. Baby Joy turned one years old in August and is turning into a beautiful girl! She has her own opinion about things, and we have not been able to socialize her as much. We did receive quite a blessing in September when a lovely gal named Lacy came to help with dog walks and getting her out and about! She has a way to go, but I think she will be just lovey and lovely.
We have HOPE that the new year will be one of rest and recuperation from all the stresses of covid, HOPE that the disease will come under control and we don't have to be as afraid, and HOPE that we will have some pups this next year!
Now, more that ever, puppies are needed for children on the autism spectrum and for our veterans with PTSD. As many clinics and meetings are cancelled, people cannot connect to get the help they need. Dogs in general are in HIGH demand! and for good reason.
