The five service pups I've raised...

July 4th is also Canine Companions for Independence's Birthday

Yarrow was in her second July 4th parade last week. Her first was last year, at age 6 month.
When Independence Day rolls around it always seems like the summer is going by much too quickly.
And this year is no different.
Toward the end of the parade, I took Yarrow over to the VIPs sitting in the grandstand. She greeted some of the top military officers in their striking dress uniforms and then I spotted an elderly gentleman in a wheel chair also in his military attire.  Yarrow sat and offered her paw when told to shake. The man grinned so big and that smile will stay with me for a long time.  His aide was also beaming and so happy I came over to them.

I always love the joy these puppies spread just by their presence and being with people...Canine Companions received a trophy again this year and here is sweet Yarrow admiring her mug in the reflection :)
