Akyra was suffering from seperation  anxiety when Brittani would leave for work, so she wondered about getting a mature, calming playmate for her. We went to the Humane Society and walked through the barking, jumping, cowering and nervous dogs confined to their cages. As we walked past this one Pit Bull in his cage, we noticed he just set there, leaning against his door, wagging his tail each  time we walked past. Brittani arranged for a meet and great for us and him. What an adorable snuggle bear. Max was Akyra`s new playmate.

Jordan rescued a Shepard mix puppy with some wolf ancestry. He named him Genji and as he began to grow it was obvious he needed more area to exercise and play. Brit offered to try Genji with the pack and see how it may work out. Now the Three Amigos are best buds and of course what one doesn’t get into the others will!

Hanna garnered the Gold Medal for long distance walking in the Special Olympics Track and Field Indiana State Tournament!

Wrapping up the results of Hanna Thomas and Derrick Moss participating in the 2019 Special Olympics Summer Games this weekend. Hanna got fourth in her standing long jump, seventh in her softball throw, and second in the 400 meter walk Derrick got second in his 200 meter dash, and finished second in the javelin throw. Due to an administrative snafu within the Madison County organization, Derrick was not able to compete in his 100 meter dash event.
They both had a great time and have best wishes for all the athletes!
