Bogo passed a major milestone on October 28 when he celebrated his first birthday in a big way. Bogo attended the Southeast Region’s 23rd annual Tales & Tails Gala. Bogo and his volunteer puppy raiser were guests of Publix Super Market Charities – one of the many generous sponsors of the event. Bogo had his photo taken in the VIP room, and you can tell he is a confident dog.

Following that fun celebration, Bogo took some time to give back to others. He participated in a turkey giveaway Thanksgiving event in Clearwater, Florida for those who have served our country.

Over the past year, Bogo has learned so much including 30 of his puppy commands: sit, down, shake, lap, under, visit, heal, side and many more. His first year has been full of adventures and a ton of learning that will prepare him for becoming an assistance dog.

Happy birthday Bogo! You are already making a difference in people’s lives, but we know that year two will have more training and experiences in store for you. We can’t wait to see what the future holds.
