International Assistance Dog Week 2017 - Lucy & Molly

So, last week (6th-12th August) was International Assistance Dog Week. IADW is an awareness week educating others about Assistance Dogs and what they do and celebrates how they transform lives. 

Molly and I have done all we can to raise awareness this IADW, through daily videos, a blog and media appearances. We've told our story and shared different aspects of our lives through our videos which were posted on our website and on Molly's Facebook Blog, I wrote a blog for the Huffington Post and we appeared on BBC Essex on the Ronnie Barbour Show and in the local Echo newspaper. 

We hope you have enjoyed it if you've followed us, but if not, here's a recap with all of our endeavours from this IADW.

  1. A dog is the only living on earth who loves you more than its own self. They are tge most loyal and honest living thing on earth. And this story sums it all very beautifully.
