ANNA! Our New CCI Puppy!

This is Anna, our adorable docile Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) Lump of Love. We're raising this pup for the next year in the hope that she'll qualify to be a working dog for someone with a disability.

Canine Companions for Independence® provides highly-trained assistance dogs for children and adults with disabilities, free of charge. They - and I - believe that the most advanced technology capable of transforming the lives of people with disabilities has a cold nose and a warm heart!

Already, Anna has enriched our lives, challenged us, grown our spirits and home. I'll be journaling our shared journey with her at http://www.raisinglove.blogspot.com/. and I'd love it if you visit us there for frequent updates on Anna's progress and impact on our lives. For now, if you'd like to learn more about CCI, feel free to leave a question for me here or to check out their website at http://www.cci.org/.

And, if you're in the area and in the need of a puppy kiss . . . come on over!

Sally, she's PRECIOUS!! I love CCI - we have a dog at school who works with our social worker. She's amazing and the kids (and the teachers!) just love her. Enjoy your year with sweet Anna, and thank you for what you're doing!
