Meet “Ice”, our 2018 Spokesdog. Ice lives in Little Elm with his owner, Lyndon Villone, and is a Certified Service Dog. Ice has been through years of training and now assists his Dad in training other Service Dogs for the brave men and women who have served in the military, breaking down walls and barriers so that they may learn to love, live and enjoy life again. Ice is a hero in our eyes and has served Dog Days well as Spokesdog!
