Overview

The power of a dog's affection goes unmeasured, as does the love of one that will never judge though always be there in time of need.

The value of such love has brought new meaining to individuals' lives, from reopening brighter qualities of life leaving depression behind, to that of sharing the determination to read and communicate to others.

As people experience such life altering changes it is often been a dog that will sit with them, allowing them to express their thoughts and emotions without turning away or judging them.
