About a year ago, four-year-old Calvin Bosick, son of Jacob and Tracy Bosick of Prescott Valley, was diagnosed with Doose Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy. Doctors advised his family to get a specially trained service dog to alert them to Calvin's seizures.

Through fundraisers and donations, the family has raised $12,000 and this past week obtained Calvin's new puppy, Hobbes. Like their comic strip namesakes, the boy and pup already share a special bond. They'll have four weeks together before she heads off for her Service Dogs 4 Independence training in Tucson, which includes regular visits and training for the Bosick family there and in Prescott Valley.

Calvin still needs about $3,000 for Hobbes' training. An account has been set up in Calvin's name at National Bank of Arizona.

More information is available at Team Calvin on Facebook, and at:
