Then Julie shares about the last weekend, jam-packed with activity. Julie and her wife helped raise almost $5000 to pay for a life saving surgery for a veteran's emotional support dog who was hit by a car and got a broken pelvis. Ray and Lil Bit are healing at home and it was quite a ride!
Lastly, Julie and Darcie have opened their home to an Old Dog Haven rescue dog who they picked up from a shelter on Saturday. Old Dog Haven places old dogs in need of homes into foster homes and forever homes, to get them out of shelters, no matter how long they have left to live. Beautiful, touching work.
Speaker interview - Dr. Simon Gadbois

One of my favorite topics to discuss is dogs' incredible sense of smell! I can't wait to hear what Dr. Gadbois has to say on this matter, given his experience specifically researching this topic, and how it can be applied. Whether it be hypoglycemia, or invasive insects, Dr. Gadbois is doing some great work around this topic!

And watch this great clip of some his program dogs being trained to detect scent. Notice the positive, encouraging tone!
