We want to give a huge thank you to the twelve owners who shared their beautiful dogs and stories
with us. It was a privilege meeting each of them. Not only did they make the decision to adopt, they
chose to invest their evenings and weekends taking their dogs through the training to become a therapy
team. We envy the wonderful bond they have with their gentle “team mates”. These owners witness
firsthand the joy and healing that their dogs can provide. Because of their generosity and time they give,
hundreds of people benefit in many ways from their animal assisted therapy.
Our lives changed in October, 2009 when we were introduced to our first rescued therapy dog, Lucy.
Not only did I discover new interests in painting but Lynn and I began to look at rescue with different
eyes. Because we became open to rescue, we adopted our Maddie last summer- a sweet, very smart,
wonderful three year old Cairn terrier who is a great addition to our life. Oh, and she couldn’t be cuter-
take a look.
Almost eight million animals are surrendered each year and half don’t make it out alive. Please choose
to offer a dog a second chance and a new beginning in your life.
We hope you buy and enjoy our 2012 calendar and learn more about these great therapy teams!
