Connections can be astounding when you look at the overall framework of life. I made this cross stitched picture of a black lab for Pete when he was away from 4-Wing Cold Lake, “on course” in
When I went to
to meet Pete’s plane, I gave him the framed picture, which I had toted along
with me. The cross stitched lab pup hung in our home when we moved in together
a few months before our wedding in 1992. Edmonton
...Fasssssst forward to 2010… to
Nova Scotia, near 14-Wing . An Autism
Assistance Dog Guide (AADG) named Argo joined our family to help our little
boy, Noah, the youngest of our four kids, who had Autism Spectrum Disorder. The
cross stitch picture was Argo to a “T.” The black lab pup in the cross-stitch
even had what looked to be some brindle colouring like Argo! That colouring is
somewhat of a rarity in the breed, but the head AADG trainer at the Lions
Foundation of Greenwood
(LFC) told us that it did show up at times in the LFC’s breeding program. Canada
It’s fitting that I had been drawn to creating that cross stitch so long before we were married & had 4 kids, including a little guy with special needs who would need a dog like Argo- the dog in the cross-stitch. The picture I had cross stitched 18 years before was a pup who could have been Argo.
That cross stitch is now hanging in the entryway of our home, &there it will stay. Love you, Pete. Love you, Noah. Love you, Argo.

Thanks for taking a peek!
Keeping this short as an S:CY update since we are getting ready to leave for NY in a matter of days. Been busy busy with fundraising and all the related trip details galore. Hoping and having great expectations that all will be well and that this MS treatment will be of help.
