Happy birthday Roo! Seven years old, what a life you’ve led so far. My first service pup, you taught me the ropes of what it takes to love — and give up — a service dog.
It was both the worst and best experience of my life, giving you up. Graduation day was a roller-coaster ride for me, but you were rock solid. I was so happy to meet your new family and see with my own eyes how much they loved you.
And while my heart broke just a little when you walked away, looking so proud in your vest and your new job, it was also one of my greatest moments.
We always look forward to your visits, but being able to celebrate your birthday makes this visit extra special. Let’s whoop it up!
