In memory of my agility partner "Henry", a group of friends and I raffled two agility jumps and other items at Labrador National Agility trial last Thursday in Bloomington IL.
$401 was collected despite the rainy, cold conditons with 100% proceeds going back to LRC for genetic research of canine epilepsy. Approximately $2000 has been collected to date in honor of Henry for labrador research. Today I received a card from AKC CHF that a separate donation was made for Pilot Study of Intravenous Levetiracetam for Emergency Treatment of Seizures in Dogs.
I wanted to thank the following for their generous donations - Kristie Wilder & Drew, McCracken County Ducks Unlimited, Life Is good company, Menopaws agility along with fellow exhibitors and friends who donated.
I put together a small tribute to the wonderful undying spirit of the labrador from lab nationals last week. The handler at the beginning took High In trial - He is 73 and suffers from severe parkinsons...what an inspiration...
Although there will never be another Henry, I will look forward to my next yellow boy....some day.......thanks for listening....
Life Is good,
