Welcome to the World According to Harrison.
Meet Harrison AKA Lymepooch

He wears the pants in the Goertzen household. Ok, he doesn't actually own a pair of pants...but he often rocks a button-down shirt and specs. He has his own instagram account and facebook page called "World According to Harrison" & is on Twitter as "Harrison's World @ticksandtrust".

Harrison has an interesting and sometimes thought-provoking life. First and foremost, he is a stalwart and steadfast companion. He likes to remind his family that there is life outside of Lyme and joy to be found in simple things - like zipping down slides and cheese and ham.

"The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them,
glory and danger alike, yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it."

In his spare time, he moonlights as an accidental advocate for lyme disease awareness as #lymepooch. He also dabbles in DIY projects as "Handy Harri". From time to time, he has been known to stun folks by verbally expressing his thoughts. This can be more than a little creepy. but it keeps us all on our toes.

Believe it or not, he contracted Lyme Disease in June 2012. This earned him a starring role in the documentary, "Ticked Off: The Mystery of Lyme Disease". Check out the full documentary here

Recently, he stepped up his role as an accidental Lyme Advocate by participating in The Lyme Disease Challenge. His efforts to spread awareness about Lyme Disease landed him a guest blogging appearance on The Touch by Lyme Blog at Lymedisease.org 

 To learn more about the Lyme Disease Challenge please visit http://lymediseasechallenge.org/ You don't need to be nominated to participate in the challenge - be like Harrison and be a changemaker and just take the initiative and take a bite out of lyme and help spread awareness about lyme.

Feel free to drop Harrison a line on his Facebook, Instagram, or twitter account.

What an adorable companion! How did you notice the tick right away? Do you check him every day? We are thinking about getting a dog, but not sure we want to deal with ticks . . . our son was bit last summer and is still being treated.
