Halfway There

It's February 3, 2010 and today Ruby is nine months old. It's hard to believe, but we're halfway through our time together and I sincerely want to thank all of you who are sharing this journey with Ruby and me.

Just as I've watched our tiny pup grow, so has our circle of online friends grown. The support we've received through your comments, emails, links, posts – and yes, even twitters! – means more to us than you'll ever know. By spreading the word about one little yellow service puppy, you help so much in our effort to raise awareness for the canine partners who make such a profound difference in the lives of people with disabilities.

Of course, half traveled means half still ahead, and my little yellow pup is just rarin' to go! We look forward to following the rest of the path with all of you.
