Sad news: We just learned that Whitey, one of Canine Connection's non-canine certified therapy animals who was featured in recent months in a story in the Dubuque Telegraph Herald died yesterday during cancer surgery. Whitey was a stray ferret who was rescued from starvation and found his role in life as a therapy animal. Rest in peace, Whitey. You did good work and represented us well - you will be missed by many.
This is actually something I have been asked to teach on fairly short notice but is being planned for October. Details to follow. Follow us on Facebook for the most current updates and information!
