The Life of Riley

Riley was a rescue I adopted in 2005. He was a Corgi/MinPin mix and had ears the size of radar dishes! Riley enjoyed coming to work with me, and some other great doggos in our visiting group, to visit the Veterans who were patients on my Behavioral Health ward. Riley eventually became my PTSD Service […]

My little shadow.

After losing Lulu and then Frankie Boy Sammy was our last of the 3 Musketeers. He was Frankie’s pal. He was lost without him. We became very bonded in our sadness. He truly was my shadow. We lost him at 13 from diabetes. I miss him with me every step I take. He was a […]

Hope Whispers

The day I saw Hope was the start of a beautiful love story full of adventure and healing. She fit in the palm of my hand. She was so fluffy I could hardly tell where her legs and eyes were. I was not in a good place in my life and was struggling to find […]

Mia’s Story

Boomer’s Journey
