A Lesson on Loyalty

Heading to a job on Highway 17 in Summerville, I spotted 2 dogs on the road.  I was surprised to see that no cars were stopping so I pulled over to see what was going on.  When I got closer I realized that one of the dog’s back legs had been seriously injured. I held onto one’s collar to keep him from going back into traffic while I worked to make a call with my other hand to try to reach their owner (from their dog tags).  An off duty policeman saw me and pulled over to help (THANK YOU).  The owner was so happy to see his boys and we got word later that the injured dog is okay.  I think the thing that touched me most was to see how loyal the dog was to his injured buddy.  He didn’t leave his side and kept licking his face as if to reassure the injured dog with a “everything is going to be alright, help is on the way”.  We humans should all have that kind of loyalty and caring for one another and stop to help another fellow human being ( or dog ; ) when we have the chance.  I felt lucky to be part of the picture that day and see such those sweet dogs and I’m so glad they’re okay.

Charleston Community Support

Supporting the Charleston – Summerville Community

Being a local business, we are very involved with our community and love to see our friends in the area do well.  We are dedicated to helping make this community a wonderful place for families and businesses.  One of the charities we support is “Courageous Kidz”.  Debby and her staff do amazing work, providing support to kids with cancer and their families.  They help families dealing with cancer to laugh again and help support all members of the families in so many ways from fun events for kids to giving moms a much needed break.

Recently they were chosen as a top 5 finalist for Non-Profit of the year.  We wanted to say ‘congrats’ and also encourage friends and families in Charleston to support this wonderful group at the finals in November.  The winner will be chosen via a live text vote that you can participate in (see http://charlestonmag.com/givingback/votenow).  To learn more about Debby and her staff and their amazing work visit: www.courageouskidz.org and if you are able, participate in the live text vote in November.
