Every spring, my service dog organization does this great fundraiser. Here’s the way it works: if I can meet my fundraising goal, Hudson gets a whole day off. Not only does Hudson not have to get dressed in his harness and help, we’re going to do some fun activities for him. His day off will be on a weekend in June, we haven’t planned more specific than that yet
Hudson will get to sleep in! This might sound silly to you, but my goof of a partner is a real lazy boy who doesn’t want to get up until he reeeeeally has to. He likes his bed, he likes his sleep, and he doesn’t want to get up until there’s something fun to do.
Next, he’ll get some of the very much loved wet food on his breakfast. He normally only gets wet food when we’re training and he’s not willing to try (or we’re working on something he’s afraid of). To just be given some for breakfast will be a HUGE treat. It’s probably his very favorite thing to eat.
We’re going to have a picnic, and invite lots of people. Of all the things Hudson wishes he could do in his everyday life, I think he most wishes he could meet and play with all the people around him. On his day off, Hudson will finally get to sniff and greet and be petted by everyone who comes to his picnic.
We’ll bring out his pool and fill it up so Hudson can have fun splashing around and biting and snuffling water.
Hudson will get some dogsicles! They’re special popsicles made for dogs, and the pups go crazy over them. It’ll be Hudson’s first time he’s ever gotten them, so I’m sure he’ll be real excited (especially given how much he likes ice cubes!)
So here’s the deal: we need to raise $400 by June 1 for Hudson to get this day off. All money goes directly to the service dog organization that Hudson came from. If you would like to donate, email me at brilliantmindbrokenbody @ gmail . com with your mailing address so I can send you a fundraising envelope. Please, boost the signal (that is, post links to this on your own journals and websites).
Hudson says thanks in advance!
