What is your dog's breed? (If you have more than one dog, please list a name followed by breed.)
Zoe and Carmen (whippet)
Blaze, Boomer and Angus (Italian Greyhound)
I'm retired and loving life in Oahu, Hawaii with my 5 sighthounds. Zoe, Carmen and Angus are Delta Society Therapy Dogs, bringing joy to children and their families at Ronald McDonald House. Blaze & Boomer are recent adoptions from Hawaii Dog Foundation. Blaze and Angus are working with HDF in an education program, teaching school kids how to care for dogs and what Working Dogs Do.
What is one thing your dog does that reminds you to open your heart and love more deeply?
My therapy dogs are so loving and gentle when visiting children. They provide unconditional compassion to so many children who are undergoing chemo and serious surgeries. They intuitively understand these children need an animal by their side to give them nonjudgemental attention and soul soothing compassion.
Hi Andrea, How nice to hear from a former "neighbor". I do hope your new "babies" are surrounding you with lots of love and affection. I used to do the "Pets on Wheels" program in the EC area with our beloved "Oscar". Sadly he passed away suddenly last September. Amazingly, the local paper did a wonderful article on him........adding that "he was the little dog that someone didn"t want, but that everybody loved". How sweet is that????
