Once upon a time, our story all began with a dog named Lucy. Lucy was our first fur-baby, and she lived a long and healthy life. We have carried on her legacy for over 20 years and have maintained a passion for giving back to pets in return for all that they give us. Grandma Lucy’s has been fortunate to be able to support different pet-related organizations over the years, but we were inspired to shift our focus to service dogs as they have a special place in our hearts. As our son Hunter has Autism, we have had first-hand experience with many of the amazing people in the special needs community. The newfound freedoms service dogs give many of these people is inspirational, and we knew then that we wanted to help more of these animals continue to live healthy lives, which starts with a healthy diet.
One of the many skills a service dog may be trained to do could classify them as “Listening Dogs,” but the benefits of reading to dogs is not just for the children. These dogs also love the time they get to spend with the children, making it a mutually beneficial relationship that is cherished by both the child and the dog. Reading can be difficult for many children and reading out loud to a classroom full of kids can be intimidating. When a child reads to a dog, they can do no wrong. The dog will not correct them or laugh at them but will give endless support and love. These “Listening Dogs” help children to gain the self-confidence they need to succeed in reading through their patience and great listening.
We thank you for your help in supporting these amazing “Listening Dogs” and other service dogs with the purchase of this bag of food. Again, we believe that a healthy pet starts with a healthy food, so not only are you allowing your dog to eat their way to health, but you are also providing healthy meals for one of these special service dogs.
