My buddy and my service dog, Cooper was one day from being put down at a shelter. He was a stray that was rescued and donated to me through Explore.Org/DogBlessYouGrant Program to help me cope with day-to-day situations that “normal” people may take for granted. He does this through grounding and mindfulness techniques. Like Coop I was lost and alone, I believe this is why we have such a strong bond with each other. I too was lost and alone and we saved each other. Cooper will of course join me on our hike as I could not think of anyone else I would like to share this adventure with since he is my inspiration.
