My BFF & Epi Warrior/Ambassador Ruger earned his wings the same day his beautiful gift arrived, June 30th 2015, July 1st 2015 AUS.
Ruger, a purebred English Staffordshire Terrier from Australia born March 28 2010 began his battle with epilepsy in August 2013. He & his family, Melissa & Jason Brock created a Facebook page with 11,000 likes to raise canine epilepsy awareness & to show that it is a manageable condition. Ruger lived his life to the fullest & brought no end of joy & happiness to everyone who met him.
Instead of being sad on the anniversary of Ruger’s first seizure, Ruger & HuDad decided to create an event. ‘Ruger’s Paws – A Day of Kindness to Others, Human or Animal’ was a great success. Many friends got involved helping to make it a day to reflect on all the wonderful things they were doing instead of being sad on that date that changed their family forever. Ruger & his family believed in turning a disability into an ability.
Thank you Ruger & family for the love & friendship you have shown me. I will cherish & wear Ruger’s precious gift with love.
