Hi,

My name is Michelle Threndyle. I was born with profound hearing loss and because of this I wear two hearing aids and read lips to function in the hearing world.  As each year goes by, I will lose a bit of my hearing and this means that I may eventually become deaf, which will affect my life significantly. So I will require the services of a hearing dog to help me with my disability.  Presently, I am raising money to pay for the training costs associated with the acquistion of a service dog.  The goal is to raise $5000, plus additional monies needed for travelling expenses.  However if you live in Toronto and want Seasonal Cards it would be best to email me at: theruralgardener@yahoo.caI am having problems making the claim this perk work here and it very frustrating as I want to make sure people get the cards! So please email me first!

I can deliver the cards to you and you can make the donation directly to me and you will get a chance to meet Lucy!

Lucy is a rescue pup and is a mix of German Sheppard, Bordie Collie and Labrador Retriever. She is very smart and at 8 months of age is receiving training at a school called Thames Centre Service Dogs. Each week, I take Lucy from Toronto to London for her  training lessons.  I spend the rest of the week repeating the work of the lesson previously given to me.  Lucy will be trained to hear things I can no longer hear such as:  tea kettle whistling, door bell ringing or knocking at the door, telephone ringing, alarm clock buzzing, smoke and emergency alarms, someone calling me from behind, etc.  She will help me to stay active outside and keep me aware of my surroundings. There are several ways to donate. You can donate here or buy seasonal cards which I created which will be posted on facebook page called: Lucy Service Dog Training Fund. I appreciate any help you can offer.  You can contact me through Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Lucy-Service-Dog-Fund-for-Michele-Threndyle/769732953066166?ref=hl
