Welcome to Tripawd Talk Radio Episode #103! On this episode we share the stories of two Sporting Tripawds, Tara and Neon.
Tara is the winner of the 2020 American Kennel Club ACE Award for Exemplary Companion dog. Her mom Mary Pat selected the Tripawds Foundation for her chosen charity, to which the AKC made a generous donation on her behalf for winning the award. Neon is a champion agility dog who’s mom Penny informed Mary Pat about the Tripawds Foundation.
The annual AKC Humane Fund Awards For Canine Excellence(ACE) are presented in each of the following five categories: Uniformed Service K-9, Therapy, Service, Search and Rescue and Exemplary Companion dog. The 2020 winners range from a Flat-Coated Retriever that excels at dock diving despite missing a paw (Tara), to a search and rescue dog who sniffed out human remains dating back to 670 A.D.
