The Olympic games are always a wonderful time to see the world coming together. This year’s Olympics will be even more Fit As Fido as the Olympic torch will be accompanied along part of its journey by two amazing service dogs and their owners.
Wendy Morrell and Udo and their good friends Karen Ruddlesden and Coco got their chance July 13th to help move the torch to start the games. Wendy and Karen are also using this opportunity to help spotlight a couple of important service dog charities in the UK:
- Dogs for the Disabled
- Medical Detection Dogs
