    Default Very Special Pup on the Cover of Time Mag for Kids - Congrats! to D & S Retrievers

    I received a link on my Facebook page of Jake (Valor, QAA x Ellie, SH), who made the cover of Time Magazine For Kids. Jake had been donated by Deb & Scott Mengel of D & S Retrievers (Pennsylvania) to the Penn Vet working Dog program - a very generous gift from some great people!. You see a lot of Jake in the video as well, and I have to say, he looks just like his daddy Valor, and reminds me of Grandpa, FC Honor! (Course momma Ellie is quite the looker, too). Their training is entirely positive.


    From the Penn Vet Facebook page:
    Guess who is on the cover of Time for Kids? Patrick Robbins and Jake are cover boys! Here is a link to the video feature, highlighting the Penn Vet program and the Stewart family (Jake's foster family) http://www.timeforkids.com/photos-video/video/hardworking-dogs-1038

    The Penn Vet program trains detection dogs for drugs, humans (Search & Rescue), etc. It is entirely funded on donations.




    I know Deb and I are both proud of Jake...... he's obviously doing great, and I can see why he is the cover boy!

    Scott and Deb are great people and great trainers also. They do a wonderful job with hunting and hunt test dogs. I am on the waiting list for a pup from the repeat breeding planned for this winter.

    Congrats Susan, Scott, and Deb!

    Thanks for posting Susan!!!! Yes, we are very proud here in Pennsylvania!!!
    We hope to go visit Penn Vet in the near future to see first hand the wonderful work that is being done at the center!!

    The repeat breeding of Ellie x Valor will bring another wonderful group of pups to choose from.

    I am so glad that the program is getting all this press. I'm very proud that Jake can be part of it. These dogs are just amazing.
