Let’s hear from Laura about her adventures with puppy-in-training Winnie in today’s #PuppyRaiserSpotlight:

Happy and full of spunk, Winnie loves learning, playing with toys, and of course—cuddling. When she’s not playing with her “sis,” Hadley, you can find her napping on her back, or walking off some energy on a little outing. Winnie loves the cue, “close” where she starts in front of me and then confidently does a half circle walk to sit between my legs. And just like magic, we end up facing the same direction!

Twice a week, Winnie gets a taste of college life with me. From attending class, to exploring campus, it’s quite the adventure with plenty of time to work on “settling” during breaks. It helps that she’s adorably studious. When we’re not at college, Winnie joins me at my job at a local pet food store. She works on “settling” behind the counter or gets in a little crate behavior practice. Oh—and weekends are for relaxing at home or having a blast at puppy group meetings!

My advice to a new puppy raiser? Take it one step at a time. While equally adorable, every puppy has a different learning style, pace, and personality. Never hesitate to ask questions or for help. That’s what this amazing community is here for. At the end of the day, these pups grow up too fast, so have FUN and enjoy each moment. Plus, you can never give (or get) too many puppy hugs.

Today we honor the brave men and women who have served our country. To us, these veterans are our heroes. To their dogs—they are purpose, meaning, and life. When a “thank you” doesn’t quite feel like enough, our dogs offer veterans hearts of unending gratitude, paws of steady service, and eyes that see into the pain and love them through it. Because sometimes one mission of healing takes two hearts of hope. Watch Hope for Heroes. #VeteransDay 🇺🇸 ...

A trip to the islands (without the travel) and changing the lives of those in need never tasted so good! We’re kicking off our second year of partnering with Whiskey Joe's Bar & Grill to support Southeastern Guide Dogs. And this time, it's bigger and better than ever with three amazing locations: Manatee River, Tampa, and Port Richey.

From November 1 to December 31, you can visit any of these locations to show your support at checkout—and every dollar raised helps us provide highly skilled dogs to people who need them most.

Along with their big-hearted generosity, Whiskey Joe's rocks a 'Floribbean' menu that celebrates local Florida favorites and the enticing flavors of the Caribbean. This delicious menu paired with their World-Famous Barefoot Tiki Bar makes for a ticket to an island paradise!

Gather your friends, enjoy a fantastic meal, and support a worthy cause.
