Dr. Laird Goodman attends Pet Partners board meeting in Lakewood, Colorado
Dr. Laird Goodman of Murrayhill Veterinary Hospital in Beaverton, Oregon, just returned from The Pet Partners board meeting in Lakewood, Colorado.
Dr. Goodman at Pet Partners board meeting with Tam and her canine partner, Dare. Dare is a double amputee Sheltie. What makes him unique besides his spunky, “can do” attitude, is that the two legs were amputated on the on the same side of his body. This would normally be extremely difficult to get around but Dare makes it look easy! Dare is unaware and uncomplaining of his disability and along with Tami have become a Pet Partner therapy team extraordinaire with Denver Pet Partners. Tami and Dare visit Amputee Support Services. He is definitely an inspiration for those with disabilities and gives hope and motivation in showing them that “Yes! You can do it!” – just like Dare!
