    Known for my unconventional reports, I am a digital journalist for My FOX Carolinas in Charlotte. I was born a long time ago in Syracuse, New York. Since then I have spent most of my life in Pennsylvania and Colorado. My biggest weakness: I have no weaknesses. I’m a smooth operator, operating correctly, and a master of journalism according to the University of Colorado.

 Dogtopia Charlotte held their annual charity dog wash benefiting ‘Paws With a Cause.’

The specific program provides trained service dogs to disabled veterans.

The owner of the Charlotte location, Nicole Odom, says “for Dogtopias nationwide, this is our tenth year so it’s a really big year for us. We’re really excited.”

The cost of training one service dog is around $30,000, so they’re hoping to raise a combined $40,000 from all 28 locations.

In Charlotte, volunteers washed a total of 116 dogs throughout the day and raised $3,425.

For information about donating to the cause, visit K9Support.org.

    Do you remember that Spanish class in high school...Or maybe that French course in college? Now just imagine going to a foreign country and taking all your classes in that language. Total emersion can be overwhelming. That's a reality many kids in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools are facing every day.
