From now until May 2018, $1 from every pour of this tasty west coast IPA served at the Breckenridge Brew Pub in Breckenridge and at the Farm House Restaurant at Breckenridge Brewery in Littleton will be donated to FSD to help supplement the cost of training Zipper and other future service dogs.

It's pretty easy to see how a dog is feeling based on their tail: happy, scared, sad, etc. A book called "If Only Humans Had Tails...and More Tales", co-authored by Vicki Medina and 9News anchor, Corey Rose, with photography by Sean McNeil of Dogs of Denver was designed to help children (and adults) express their emotions by relating to the beautiful photos of furry, four-legged models - some of which are from Freedom Service Dogs. You can order your copy now for a suggested donation of $10 each and ALL proceeds come straight back to FSD.
