"Toughest Dog in Texas Competition"
Rowan loves animals, especially dogs. And he has a special place in his heart for Law Enforcement K-9s. Rowan's home nurse's husband is a deputy with the Comal County Sheriff's Department, and he allowed Rowan to be involved in the first graduating class of their K-9 training program this past year. Rowan was asked to go out on the field and hide a pair of car keys for one of the dogs to find. Rowan was so honored to be a part of that graduation ceremony. He talks about it all the time, and he knows all of the dogs in their department by name.
Then, a few months later, during one of Rowan's long hospitalizations they made a special visit to the hospital to see him. Here are some pictures of Rowan reuniting with the K-9 graduates.
They even brought him a picture of the Comal County Sheriff Department's K-9 Unit,
signed by the Sheriff:)
Thanks Sheriff Bob Holder, Deputy Duane Buethe & the rest of the Department, and a very special thanks to "Rex", "King", "Nitro", and "Titan"!
Now, comes the big news...Deputy Duane, along with Comal County Sheriff's Office & the New Braunfels Police Department are holding the first ever "Toughest Dog in Texas" Competition, with proceeds to benefit the Rowan Jameson Windham Foundation. Please visit the link:
and see what an amazing event they have organized for this coming October.
It'll blow your socks off! Rowan couldn't be more excited or more proud to have the dogs and their handlers participate in this competition in his honor, so he can help out even more kids like himself who are so often hospitalized for their illnesses.
Spread the word, come out and watch the fun, and be a part of the first ever "Toughest Dog in Texas" Competition. Rowan will be there, as will all his K-9 buddies.
God bless all the K-9 dogs and their handlers, Deputy Duane, and all Texas Law Enforcement Agencies, as well as all of the sponsors of this wonderful event!
