Since partnering with the Lions Foundation of Dog Guides in 2014, our stores have raised over $280,000 to sponsor teams all across Canada. In this issue of Companion we are so proud to introduce you to some recent additions to the Pet Valu Dog Guide team (pg 6). Thank you so much for your continued generosity towards the Lions Foundation of Dog Guides. Our customers, stores and sta† have truly made a di†erence in the lives of Canadians living with disabilities. This summer I am looking forward to spending time by the lake with my family, friends and my dog Lucy of course. Lucy is older and not as quick as she once was, but launching a ball into the water and having her retrieve it makes her act like a puppy again. Our Chuckit! is a must-have when we pack for a weekend away. And although Lucy thinks she can swim forever and has always been a strong swimmer, she definitely doesn't have the endurance she once did. If she is getting on a boat or this summer, a life jacket is a must. Read more tips about summer water safety on page 13. Happy Reading!
