Sparky’s Send Off Hootenanny

Yesterday 9-30-2023, we all gathered at Village Cigars in Columbus to give us all an opportunity to see Sparky one last time before he has to report to campus to begin his training as a service dog for some lucky recipient. When I say lucky, I mean the person whom is placed with Sparky has won the dog lottery, he is the best dog and a (sic) “heckin” good boy. His puppy raisers Steve and Diane Sellers have done a stellar job with him. His personality is addicting and he has the biggest heart to go with his waggy tail and wet kissy lips. Sparky, you will do amazing and we are so proud of the young man you have grown into. A big thank you to Steve and Diane, and we pray for them as this is going to be a hard thing to do, by handing him back to SEGD (Southeastern Guide Dogs) so he can begin his training. 

The Ohio Cigar Mafia wants to extent our thanks to Brett Bennett the proprietor of Village Cigars of Columbus, Ohio for being a top notch host. He fed us all Schmidt’s sausages, cake, and unloaded a truck load of swag and cigars on us. If you are in the neighborhood and want a cigar, be sure to check him and the guys out. Note: Village Cigars, is a preferred OCM(Ohio Cigars Mafia) Lounge.
