DOGGONE IT. What fun to be part of this Bellhops Moving campaign. I’ve been impressed by this start-up and their desire to impact local communities beyond the services they offer. That knowledge made this photo-shoot all the more enjoyable.

Dad and I have a turned a major corner lately, the connection between us keeps getting stronger and I can anticipate his stress and help him through it. At his last appointment with his therapist, there were two times where it got intense for Dad and I was able to get up on his lap both times, without a command, to help him work through it. Dad is even trusting me more to let him know when I feel like the anxiety is coming on. He's been so disciplined in my training, making sure I'm learning and being a great service dog, but now he is listening to my cues and realizing how much more I can help him ❤️
For those that don't know, my Dad has PTSD from his tour in Afghanistan in 2007-2008. He dealt with it alone for 8 years and then when he retired from the army in 2016 everything came to the surface and it was just too much to keep doing it alone. That's where I came in 🐶 The wait for a trained service dog is 2+ years. Dad didn't have two years. So Mom suggested to get a puppy that we could train ourselves and not long after I came into the world and at 9 weeks I came to my forever home. Dad went on a mission to find anybody that could help us train and certify me. Dad is pretty determined once he sets his mind on something, and Mom supports him 100%, and over the last year we've worked with some amazing people that were willing to help us, and now all the pieces are coming together ❣️ Mom seems to be filled with so much gratitude, and can see how important the bond between me and Dad is, she is just really happy to see the both of us get through the day to day things together. There's so much love and respect between us that Mom says "it's a beautiful thing to see" 😍

I hope this story makes national news, if it hasn’t already.
Chiefs player Jeff Allen and his wife were on the way to arrowhead Stadium before the game this last weekend and got stuck in the snow.
A homeless man, Dave, living in his truck, helped push them out… He is being rewarded by the Chiefs and hundreds of others since the story broke.
Here is a guy with nothing but his truck & dog. Back windows broken out & trash bags taped over them. He said, “That’s what you’re supposed to do. Help people.” (Paraphrased)
He didn’t know Jeff Allen was a Chiefs player. He just had a good heart.
Well.. Jeff Allen is making sure he is at the game in style. A full set of new clothes. Boots. Coats. Tons of things. Donations from all over KC pouring in for this man.
A glass company is putting windows in his truck. Giving it a good going over.
Local veterinarians offering free care & vaccinations for his dog.
He’s so humble on camera.
Watching him makes all my problems look like nothing & feel guilty actually.
Talk about a nice boost to humanity.
This is feel good news.
