”Stutz helps me keep my focus, to be more positive and calm, and so that helps with my PTSD. With both sons gone, Stutz has taken their place. He is such an important member of the family. When I visit my former base, everyone comes over, knows Stutz and myself by name, want to know how we are doing. I’m now working in Outfitters Gun Shop and Stutz is just great with the customers, always obeys.”
Thank you ECAD for all that you do. “
On this Labor Day, I wish to salute our working dogs, Rosie, Ivy, and now Ace. Our working dogs have made an incalculable difference in the lives of troubled children and they have many canine colleagues working throughout the world everyday serving as companions to veterans, disabled children and adults, autistic children and other vulnerable individuals. What love and joy they bring into our human lives. God Bless you all. Rosie and Ivy we will never forget what you did and who you were!
Sierra is great. She gets Troy on and off the bus for school. The kids love her and so do the driver and aide. … Sierra can’t stay at school because Troy doesn’t talk very well yet and master her. I do hope some day it will happen. … We love her very much and I can’t thank you both enough for taking great care of her and the ones after her. …Best of luck with Boone. Thank you for being a major part of ECAD.
Hi Tara. I don’t know if you remember us or not but this is Cecile Roberts and Troy Roberts and Sierra Mist from the May class of 2010 ….I was going through some photos and thought one in particular should be passed onto Sierra’s old home handlers…. When I read their article in the newsletter, I thought they would like to know that Sierra is happy in her new home and has wonderfully helped Troy…
Thank you again, Cecile.
We've had Baker for 2 1/2 years. Since Baker joined our family, we've experienced more freedom and even bonded more as a family. Micah not only can go to stores, but can hike with us as a family. My other children feel more normal when we're out in public. We have a sense of pride when out with Baker. He's beautiful and lets people know how special our family is. We love him and are eternally grateful for this gift from ECAD.
Tara sent us your email and the picture of Sierra: thank you! It was wonderful to see her again and to know she has made an important difference in your lives, and wow, Troy is certainly growing up. We often talk of Sierra and what a terrific dog she is. Lately we’ve been home handling a male named Boone who is similar. We’ll stay in touch!
