Frieda is now at the point of her retrieve training that if I drop something naturally in the day, I cue her to get it, and she’s happy to do so. Today I dropped a bag of high value treats. There was this moment of “should I...” so I looked at her sweet, innocent little eyeballs and decided ehh what the heck... “bring!” And you know what this gem did... she freaking did it. 🤩 #futureservicedog @americasvetdogs

I’m thankful for a horse that let’s me get it wrong, but makes sure I know when I‘ve gotten it right. I’m thankful for a farm that can take a tired, stressed version of myself and transform it into a more patient, grounded, and energized version- one that is able to give so much more to others. I’m thankful for horse friends that get it, and family members that support it, even if they don’t. I’m thankful for long, hard roads that lead to the very brightest sides of life. @brightsidefarm

She has no idea what she’s doing... But not for long 😉 Today was my last day with Swap before she heads to her full-time puppy raising family. I came up with many nicknames for the fluff ball, but I often just called her “Swappy.” When you say that out loud, it sort of sounds like you’re saying “so happy” which is telling of her personality. It is my hope that she will make both her puppy raising family and eventually a guide dog user “Swappy” in the days to come. To all the #swapteam members who helped make her sponsorship possible, thank you!! I can’t wait to cheer her on from afar. You can watch @swapsstory unfold by following her very own Instagram account if you haven’t done so already! ❤️ @guidedogfoundation

Ring the bell! Sponsorship of a future VetDog fully funded on Veteran’s Day in honor of an incredible veteran and her stellar battle buddy, Charlie. Endless appreciation for every veteran that inspires me to be the kind of person worth fighting for, and a giant thank you to this community of kindness, generosity, and goodness. If you need me, I’ll be running celebratory sprints as enthusiastic as Frieda’s hearing dog patterns. 😉 @americasvetdogs @slpearsall

When I set up the fundraiser for puppy Pearsall, I gave it 45 days, hoping we could have her fully sponsored by Christmas time. Well, your hearts are big and, to use some training lingo, your latency is very low. In other words, your response time to a cue is LIGHTNING fast, and we now have the opportunity to complete the sponsorship honoring a phenomenal veteran and her VetDog on Veteran’s Day. That gives me chills! Just $376 to go. Frieda is here hoping to give you a little extra nudge to donate and make this a reality. 🥰 (No amount is too small! Link in bio for more info.)

Nearly $3,000 raised in less than 24 hours has me completely overwhelmed. While I wasn’t lacking in enthusiasm for the work before, I now feel supercharged to give it just a little bit more of myself. Pictured is Java, Charlie’s sister, with her litter from last year. Puppy Pearsall will come into the world with a fabulous mama and surrounded by a team of the most thoughtful, caring people already cheering her on. Thank you seems to fall short, but thank you so very much. ❤️ (Link in bio for more info.)

_oliviapoff. This summer, I decided I wanted to fundraise to sponsor a @guidedogfou

This summer, I decided I wanted to fundraise to sponsor a @guidedogfoundation puppy in honor of our most recent TODAY Show Puppy with a Purpose, Sunny. One who would hopefully go on to become a guide dog, since Sunny's allergies prevented him from personally doing so. During that fundraising effort, the goal was exceeded by $2,200, which is 36% of the way to a second puppy sponsorship. It was a no brainer for me to want to continue fundraising in order to be able to honor Charlie’s incredible partnership with @slpearsall. (Charlie was our first Puppy with a Purpose through @americasvetdogs.) That said, I feared appearing greedy with the generosity of the first fundraiser, and I wanted to be sure the timing was appropriate. Sometimes the universe impels you to do something so strongly, your fears fall away. Click the link in my bio for the motivation to complete this mission. I hope you feel inspired to help one more time. The ripple effect is always so much bigger than you anticipate. ❤️

Frieda is small, and I am tall, so I’ve been working on teaching her to pick her head up when delivering a retrieve item to me. She now does it with such enthusiasm that her ears fly back, and it’s my new favorite thing. #futureservicedog @americasvetdogs

I knew I loved this little lady! She is related to BOTH Charlie AND Sunny! Her mom has the same mom as Charlie (so he is her uncle), and her dad is Sunny’s dad too (so they’re half-siblings). 🤩🤩🤩 #futureservicedog @americasvetdogs
