Do Dogs Change Lives?

November 8, 2012 at 2:35 pm 8 comments

B.J. here. You’ve probably heard me talk about a great young lady named Kimi Yokota who raises CCI dogs. One of her nine dogs, Gottlieb, was recently paired with a wounded warrior. This video is 3 minutes of pure inspiration and love along with a heartfelt Thank You from a vet.
 NAPE Expo Video for CCI
As Kimi says, “I’m one proud puppy raiser!”
And I’m super proud of Kimi.
What dedication, what compassion. A young woman truly giving to others.
Charlie Bear and I love you, Kimi!
(The video was made for CCI by Katie Malatino.)

    BJ, Dan and Kay here. We’re in Carlsbad (I think Kay told you some time back we’d vacation here for our 14th anniversary) and are here for the week. This Wednesday is kind of busy, but not much else for the week. We were wondering if you’d like to drive down and spend a day with us here. Kay suggests you contact her through FaceBook so this is not so public. We hope to hear from you soon. Love and hugs, Dan (Or contact us by email; either way…)

      YOU are the wonderful person. You do such an unselfish thing by sharing your time and energy and love with dogs who then help others. My hat is off to you and Charlie Bear sends his wiggles and woofs.

    It is simply amazing how the right person can take a dog and train them to do so many things to help people that have lost their capacities to do so many things for themselves. May God bless those folks that devote their time and talents to do this type of work in order to help those wounded in service to our Country as well as other deserving people.

    Kimi does such an unselfish thing…raising a puppy until they are a year and a half and then turning them in so they can help others. What a selfless thing to do. Thanks so much for commenting. We appreciate you.

    What a story, B.J. I’m teary-eyed. Thank you for sharing it. So grateful for CCI and the help it brings Wounded Warriors. God bless them.
