Bella, Lu's Great Dane, had a long labor and delivery on July 21 and 22. On July 23 she gave us a scare when she developed a fever. It turned out Bella needed an emergency c section to remove a dead puppy nobody knew about. Fortunately, Bella is recovering quickly and taking excellent care of her babies.
Russell, a golden retriever/lab is the proud dad of these 9 black, adorable pups. The puppies will be trained by ECAD and other Service Dog providers to see if they make good balance dogs for taller adults. We'll keep you posted.

We recently took some of the ECAD dogs to the Mystic Aquarium in Mytic, CT. The dogs included Gigi, Brownie, Angel and Sierra who were all handled by the Torrington volunteers. (in photo: Mitchel, Amanda, Cecilia, Jacob, Sarah, Hayden and Hunter) This trip was made possible by the Mystic Team that we contacted. We would like to give a special thanks to Ashley Holtt, and Allison Tuttle from Mystic Aquarium who made this possible. We're looking forward to our next visit to the Aquarium before the end of the summer.
