Remember the East Coast earthquake of August 23, 2011? At Little Creek Veterinary Clinic, our building shook, as if a train were rumbling past our front door.

Well, it could happen again — toppling more than just lawn chairs.

That’s why it’s good to know what to do if the earth starts moving beneath your feet. Join in the 2017 Great Shakeout on October 19th and learn how (and why) to Drop, Cover, and Hold On!

At the end of 2016, I mentioned in a blog post that I would limit my postings to original content, rather than re-posting familiar subjects. The Little Creek Veterinary Clinic Circle of Life post each month is an exception, as is the annual October Pet Blessing list. Since I’ve already made those exceptions, here’s another:

In 2011, I ran a post called Be a Hero – Train a Service Dog. Service dogs are, quite literally, life-savers for the people who depend on them, and they therefore deserve another turn in the spotlight. 

The original post featured Leader Dogs for the Blind and Service Dogs of Virginia. Not to be left out, however, is Canine Companions for Independence. CCI has been providing assistance dogs, free of charge, to people in need since 1975. CCI assistance dogs help disabled people live more independently — in a sense, acting as the person’s extra set of hands.

The assistance dogs are trained to retrieve items, turn lights on and off, open doors, shut drawers, help with clothing, and more.

CCI dogs can also be trained to help the non-hearing, assist disabled veterans, and work in healthcare or education facilities.

[CCI dogs are not trained for health/medical alerting, guiding the blind, etc. More information can be found on the FAQ page.]

You may not ever need a CCI assistance dog, but if you’d like to be involved with their program, check out www.cci.org/GiveADogAJob. You’ll find options for donating funds, raising a puppy, and participating in Dog Fest Walk’N Roll.
