Our Naked Dingo group attended this event last year and not only had a blast, but were also extremely inspired by the keynote speaker of the night! I can’t hear enough about the obstacles that service dogs help people overcome and the new beginnings and miracles they bring to so many lives!  Help support their work!

The Secret Life of a Service Dog

Amy Hoh always has her service dog, Cortez, at her side. He serves a very special purpose for her. In addition to the tasks this German Shepherd was trained for, such as retrieving dropped items, Amy has worked with Cortez to develop additional life-saving skills. Amy is diabetic, and Cortez is able to alert her when she experiences low blood sugar.  Even before a human can detect it, Cortez is able to smell and detect ketoacidosis, a potentially life-threatening complication to patients with diabetes. For Amy, Cortez has granted her the gift of independence, mobility, and unconditional love. He and Amy understand each other so well, he practically talks to her! Make sure you attend Dinner, Art, & Wine for Canines to witness the amazing conversation between Cortez and Amy about their life together!
