Dog Walk Ambassador: Matthew Moses
My name is Matthew Moses and I am proud to be the Ambassador for the 2nd annual Autism Speaks Canada Dog Walk with my dog Rookie.
Rookie is very special to me and my family as he understands my feelings especially when I’m sad. He also makes me laugh all the time being his goofy self and loves all of us unconditionally.
I feel dogs are a very good comfort when life throws curve balls.
Please join us with your dog and sign up to the Dog Walk on Sunday, September 8, 2019.
