A Service Dog for Hannah

Conservative cartoonist Glenn Foden ( https://www.facebook.com/glenn.foden?ref=ts&fref=ts) and his family had a dream: a trained service dog for his daughter Hannah. With his sudden death in March, the dream was in jeopardy as we struggled to make ends meet in daily life. However, the dream wouldn't die and in July, a beautiful collie, "Rosalee," was donated. The only obstacle that remains is funding for dog training. Rosalee will require specialized training to help Hannah cross the street, find help when she is lost or frightened, provide support when she is overwhelmed, as well as a host of other tasks (I vote we teach her to do the laundry!). To accomplish this training without Glenn, we will need more than a dream. We will need help covering the training that will allow Hannah to explore the community with more independence. As she puts it, "Rosalee will help me be big." Please consider donating in Glenn's memory.
Thank you all for the love and support you have bestowed on our wounded family in the past few months. It means more than you know as we move forward with an empty chair at the dinner table and the break in our hearts.

For Rosalee, service dog in training at Show Me Your Dog Training in Halethorpe, MD ( https://www.facebook.com/smydtraining/?ref=ts&fref=ts), it is all about play. But thanks to everyone's support, we know that someday she will be able to retrieve things when Hannah is in pain. Thank all of you for getting us ready to begin this journey. It is so hard to move forward in life without husband and father Glenn Foden, who died suddenly in March 2016, but we sense him with us.

Please watch the videos of Rosalee (she is the collie). You helped to make it all happen!

Hannah and Rosalee have bonded and gotten to know each other. Next step in Glenn Foden's dream of a service dog for our daughter Hannah: boot camp for Rosalee. Last night she went home with her trainer, Dave Cochran of Show Me Your Dog Training ( https://www.facebook.com/smydtraining/?ref=ts&fref=ts) where she will spend the next 30 days preparing for the intense service dog training to come. Hannah will be training with Rosalee once a week until boot camp ends and Hannah can bring her pup home on November 28. Hannah is not a fan of the separation!

Rosalee arrived today, full of curiosity and collie smiles! Thanks to everyone who donated and supported Glenn's dream for our daughter Hannah. Her face is lit up with joy, the likes of which we haven't seen since we lost her dad, Glenn Foden.

Just learned of Glenn's passing and of Hannah's need. Glenn and I were suite mates at UMass. We will keep you in our prayers.
