4 Paws 4 Krysta


November 2009

It's been awhile since I've updated this.  Krysta and Ben are still quite the team!  She's now in Grade 3 and LOVING every minute of it.

She's had quite the adventures in the last year.  We have met and become friends with Mr George Cohon (Owner of McDonalds Canada), who was Ben's owner when he was a puppy.  Krysta was the guest of honor at a Ronald McDonald House Charity Golf tournament and Ronald himself was there to meet Krysta & Ben!  It was quite a night with a lot of famous faces.

Krysta is still my little Dr. Doolittle LOVING animals of all shapes and sizes!  We're going to have to move to a farm one day! (ha ha).

Anyways, that's all I can think of right now.

Until later, God Bless.

After 2 weeks of an intense "boot camp" of dog training, we are happy to announce that Krysta's service dog BEN has been home since the end of June 2008!  Everyone is adjusting nicely, and with Ben home strides have been made in a positive direction for Krysta!  I am sure as time goes on he will prove to be quite an asset in her emotional development and many other areas!

Ben now attends school every morning with Krysta thanks to the Co-Op placement program through Nantyr Shores Secondary School here in Innisfil.  The young lady in grade 11 who actually helped train Ben at the school, and is a 2 year veterain in the COPE training program, is doing her Co-Op placement by being Ben's handler at Krysta's school so he can be with her every morning!!!

I will keep this website up to date with further happenings!!!

 We will always be accepting donations for C.O.P.E. as they are a non-profit organization and therefore we will have our bank account on hand for anyone wishing to make donations.

The bank account for our fundraiser has been opened through the TD Bank.  Should you wish to make a donation for Krysta's cause the information is as follows:

We also have a paypal account set up which is linked to the above mentioned account.  Donations through paypal can be made to 4paws4krysta@gmail.com

 Thank you to the Irish Connection and my sister Nancy for all their help with the successful fundraiser in April.  To date we have raised upwards of $15,000.   Thanks to all those who came out to show their support as well!  Without you the night would not have been such a success!!!
