Remembrance Day 2019

News

Today, November 11th is Remembrance Day here in Canada. It’s a day to pay respect & remember those who died fighting for their country.

A variety of animals have served in the military during the two world wars. Mules carried artillery, horses transported troops & hauled field guns, pigeons delivered crucial messages & dogs served as messengers, medical assistants, bomb detectors as well as search & rescue workers.

Two new commemorative pins have been issued by the Ontario SPCA & Humane for Remembrance Day. The “Animals in War” pins were created to honor the bravery of Canadian veterans & the animals who served by their side.

For each pin sold, $1 is donated to the Royal Canadian Legion to support veterans. Pins are available online for purchase at pawsandgive.ca/remember or at any one of the OSCPA & Humane Society’s locations across the province.

It’s sad that war is still with us. One day, I hope we are all just one happy pack.

Reminder – November is Epilepsy Awareness Month. This year I’m asking all my fellow Epilepsy Warriors & wagnificent supporters to help me raise Canine Epilepsy awareness globally. Here’s what I want you to do. Get your human to take your picture with a sign showing your “Bark Out” or motto against this horrible disease. Then send it to me by messaging my Facebook page, “Oh, the Life of Olivia“. Let’s show the world how strong the Canine Epilepsy Community is.
