National Pet Week Hero Is Busting Bullies

National Pet Week May 2-8

And what better story than a local author’s story of her handicapped dog whose “Tail” is helping build kids’self esteem and in turn offer a unique means to stop bullies?

Initially caregiver to her courageous and resourceful dog, Claudia Broome became his student, learning firsthand how to overcome adversity, gain strength and nurture self-esteem. Her personal focus now is reaching out to special needs children and in particular, children being bullied and everyone who is involved in their lives.

Rugby Jones, with his humorous and lovably cocky attitude, is now captivating thousands of people with his to-the-point message that disability is really ability in disguise.

Kids who are different …hopefully… have teachers and parents to protect them but they don’t have any heroes. Rugby Jones is here to fill that gap. His appeal for children – especially children like him who are disabled in some way – is instant!

As Broome speaks from Rugby’s point of view, without guidance, kids begin to understand that everyone can enjoy life fully by embracing their circumstances and taking pride in their differences. Broome has helped many teachers support kids with all kinds of “differentnesses” with a unique approach to lowering the power of bullies.

Broome has offered a hero by the name of Rugby Jones. He has thousands of followers on Twitter to prove it. @rugbyjones.
