It is with great sadness TADSAW INC. announces the passing on Monday April 17, 2017 of one of the ‘legendary Mothers’ of the Penny’s From Heaven Foundation Therapy Dog Program, GRACIE, a small, blind Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen (PBGV)- who shared many experiences and snuggles with the Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, while at BAMC and RIOSA in San Antonio. She always had room for one more Veteran when visiting. That was GRACIE – a Therapy Dog who helped blaze the way for the ‘Train a Dog – Save a Warrior’ program.
PENNY & GRACIE are the Matron Saints of all the TADSAW Service Dogs and their handlers, and are remembered by the copper penny that is awarded when the Team graduates.
God Bless You GRACIE and may you be at peace with Penny by your side once again.
