For those of you who don’t know me, let me introduce
myself. My name is Moses. And I am very proud to say I was
the Founding Pup of Carolina Canines for Service.
I was born on October 15, 1996 and I came into Ricks life on
December 1st of that year and actually at
that very moment Carolina Canines went from a dream to
reality. I know the elaborate temperament test that Rick does now, and
let me tell you the night he picked me, there was no such test. I was one
of 13 puppies, it was cold and rainy and Rick was literally knee deep in mud,
so as he held up each of us up to the headlights of a Geo Tracker,
he looked at me second, and then after looking at all the rest of the puppies,
he chose me! Actually I chose him, he just didn’t know it yet. I
was the biggest and most wiggly in the litter. And so it
began. It has been a tremendous ride, and I do mean ride.
service dog in training, an actual service dog, a demonstration dog, a therapy
dog and a Paws For Reading Dog, I have flown and/or driven from Washington
State to Florida, from Salt Lake City to our marvelous capital of Washington
D.C. Near as I can figure Rick and I have traveled well over a half
a million miles together. I have met Senators, Congressmen, men and women of
all ages, sizes, and shapes. We have been able to serve
civilians and my beloved U.S. Military. I’ve seen the
organization grow from an idea and dream to an organization that has provided
more than $4 million dollars in services to the communities we serve free of
charge. It is now March of 2011, and I am very old. And I have done
my job. It is time for me to rest. So on Friday evening Rick has
invited our veterinarian over to our home and Rick will escort me to the
Rainbow Bridge. I will be surrounded by the ones who love me the most,
and Rick will hold me in his arms one last time as I cross over the bridge to
be met by a whole host of people and animals that will welcome me to the land
where there is no pain and I can play like a little puppy again.
asking for your help one last time. I have had Rick and Pat develop a
fund raising page for me on The Walk for Those Who Can’t page, please
donate. I have given everything I have had to this cause and would do it
all over again. Let this be my biggest fund raising event.
I’ll be waiting patiently and will welcome all who knew me when
you come to this place called the Rainbow Bridge.
-Ever Faithful, Moses.
