Looks like Idie Hastings and our student "Coco" are staying busy! Velja and Marley both love Miss Coco's One Lucky Dog Treats as much as I love the food over at OvenBird. It's so great to see the best in mental health supported by the best in the food biz. Head on over to Ovenbird now and grab box to benefit Hand in Paw. Oh, and Idie, be sure to give Coco a pat on the head for me and tell her Aaron said to stay in her bed. #therapydogsrock #foodforthesoul #ovenbird #3Ddog
