Oakmont Senior Communities Donates Medical Service Dog “Oakie” to Michigan Marine Veteran

 

Oakmont Senior Communities is proud to announce that Oakie, a Guardian Angels Medical Service Dog trained to assist veterans of the United States Military with the daily tasks of living, has been donated by Oakmont and recently paired with a mid-Michigan Marine named Randy.

Residents, staff, and families from Oakmont’s five area independent and enhanced senior communities raised $25,000 through small fundraisers over the past 15 months to help facilitate Oakie’s no-cost adoption and the relationship between dog and owner couldn’t be going better.

“He’s just been with me a few days, but he’s already helped me a lot,” said Randy, a veteran who was honorably discharged in 1997 and went on to serve as a firefighter. “He’s young but he’s my type of guy,” Randy said, “He’s a great guy.”

Oakie, a German Shepard that was one of the quickest dogs in Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs history to graduate into service, was given his unique name via an Oakmont-wide naming contest held by residents and staff in late 2019. Among many great suggestions, Oakie was the clear winner and it’s a perfect fit for the Shepard’s upbeat personality.

Kelly B. wrote in to tell us about her best friend and grandfather, John J., who lives at Oakmont Sterling.

I’ve always considered my Grandad, John J., to be one of my best friends. He walked me down the aisle on my wedding day and that meant the world to me. I love going to breakfast with him at Jimmy’s Coney Island and having our morning chats.

I now live in Traverse City with my son and husband and due to COVID-19, I have not been able to take my grandad out to breakfast. As soon as I come down to visit, that’s the first thing him and I will do! My son’s middle name is John which is after his great-grandad.

I love you so much, grandad!! Happy Father’s Day!! I will see you soon!!
