Dempsey went to a graduation ceremony last night! This was not for him, of course -- he still has a lot to learn -- but for two other dogs, Maeve and Charlie, and their new parents. It was a lovely evening that reminded us why we love our work with Dempsey, and how he will touch so many lives.
The event was covered by WCCO news, which ran a series on Tyler, a bright young high school student recovering from a paralyzing football injury. His courage and determination are truly inspiring; we encourage you to watch the videos showing his progress.
One of the questions we get frequently in the Dempsey mailbag is "How can you give up your dog?" I think last night is a perfect answer to that question.
