Welcome to Julian and Gemini's Personal Page
"The $50,000 dog that makes a $50 million difference. To me."
That's how we described Gemini to the film crew that visited our house in June for an exhibit we'll both be in at the California Science Center in Los Angeles next spring.
But Canine Companions for Independence provided Gemini and prepared my family for her at no cost to us.
You've seen her with me. You've heard stories. You know what big difference she makes for me.
As my dad likes to say, "How great is Julian's dog? When Timmy was stuck in the well, Lassie ran to Gemini to get help."
She arrived at our house knowing 50 commands. We've taught her a bunch more including getting my shoes and braces, putting the laundry away and answering the phone. And we're not done. There will be more.
I wanted to share my experience with Gemini so I got a booth at the Highland Park Street Fair and took donations while running a dog trivia contest. I also gave a speech and demonstration to the third graders at the Indian Springs School for their Unique Individuals Day. Gemini was a hit at both events.
I'll be at DogFest, proud of my dog and proud at what a difference she makes. Please stand with me by making a generous contribution.
