20131124-IMG_1155On Saturday and Sunday of this past weekend, we got be a part of something really cool. Especially if you are a Star Wars geek like me. We were invited to attend the Long Beach Comic and Horror Con as special guests of the Southern California Garrison, 501st Legion. The 501st learned of Luke and Jedi, and decided to help raise money for them and Canine Hope for Diabetics.

From a very early age, we take these dogs to places like Disneyland and introduce them to all the people in costume to get them comfortable with it. You run into them all the time, at a sporting event, the mall, Halloween, Little Ceasars pizza, etc.

And when we went back on Sunday (just Major, Dash, and I) he alerted to a great low on Luke. He has always had a sweet spot for Luke, and will alert on him when Stella isn’t near by.
