What is one thing your dog does that reminds you to open your heart and love more deeply?
when I am sad Gracey climbs up and cuddles my kneck and makes me feel safe and loved and when this happens it strengthens me to take her to the mental health gatherings to participate. when she is with me my fear is less. i can participate and help others feel better because she is the snuggled in my arms showing me that unconditional love that i have found only from her and God.

I will look u up in face book. I love what I do and how wonderful; all animals response to the needs of people. especially to see the joy and happiness in their face. I been living in PR for close to 8 years and It is very sad to see so many alone and how people disrespect the quality lif of animals.

We lost our dear Ginger 2 years ago while I was in a diabetic coma. She also became diabetic at the same time and was extremely ill. While I was in a coma my husband hand to gently lay her in the arms of our vet to say goodbye. I will never be able to say how sorry I am not to have been there to hold her and him when it was time to say goodbye. She was the dearest one and it seemed wrong that I survived and she didn't. It took me a long time to understand that she is now alive and healthy in the hereafter and that is something I could never giver her. I miss her everyday and thank God that with her love I am able to handle having this disease myself.
