UA-60701407-50 A Dog on a Mission - Golden Daily Scoop

October 9, 2014

A Dog on a Mission

Back in August when mom attended Rescue the Runway she was introduced to an amazing dog.

Now, this isn't your ordinary, average dog.

He is soft, cuddly and has a very important job.

Like Lilly, he is another local hero.

His name is Trouble and he is anything but that!

Trouble is a plush dog who inspires and helps children beat adversity and is on a mission to help children who are going through troubling times.

Directly from the website:

About Trouble The Dog®
"Applauded as a socially conscious toy; a therapy dog and a comfort toy, Trouble The Dog® has a mission to help kids going through troubling times, big or small. Co-created by Sheila Duncan and her niece, Trouble helps kids cope, hope, believe and dream. His iconic expressive face attracts children and makes them smile. Kids love to whisper their concerns into Trouble's ear. He has soothed children around the world and can be found in Europe, Africa, China, Haiti and throughout the United States. Trouble is one of the few plush toys that is 100% handcrafted in the USA. The company sells plush dogs, books and accessories, and donates Trouble dogs to children's hospitals, the Children's Miracle Network and to families after crises and natural disasters."

Mom was lucky enough to scoop up a Trouble The Dog bracelet they were selling at the show...

Life has so many challenges these days for both adults and children. I love the message that Trouble is spreading around the world, no matter how big or small your troubles are, there is always hope!

I am so thankful for my furry pals who I can count on to lift my spirits when I'm down in the dumps...
You can learn more about Trouble the Dog and his mission via the website, Twitter and Facebook.

  9. That is pretty cool! He looks like a little less trouble then some of the pups I know though! ;)

  10. That's a pretty cute doggy with a strange name but he evidently does a lot of good.

  11. What a great idea.

  12. kewl is thiz !!!! we enjoyed reedin yur post two day & lurnin bout trouble !! ♥

  13. What a great thing to do. I like how trouble has un matched eyes too - which is important in therapy showing not everyone is perfect in appearance - it's what is inside that counts.

  14. This is cute, and a great cause.

    1. That is such a wonderful thing. My Stepmom used to make hand crafted stuffed bears with some other ladies, all with little outfits, both girl and boy beers and take them to the kids in the trauma unit. They were all so beautiful, but for one, made out of a new, cheaper material they tried, and the hair fell out. He wasn't given to anyway, and stayed at home where we named him Rogaine bear.

      I am so going to link and share this. Bless who ever came up with this, and all of you who promote it.

  15. This is such a great idea. I really love the message on their bracelets. ☺

  16. We will check him out - thanks!

    Monty and Harlow
