I have loved dogs my entire life. I have always considered my dog my best friend, but Tahoe, my Golden Retriever, is even more than that. I wanted to do some volunteer work, but felt bad leaving Tahoe alone, so decided that we could volunteer together and that would solve the problem. We became a registered therapy team and started visiting different venues. I was just worried about whether Tahoe really liked doing that or not. I also wanted to know how Tahoe was feeling in general.
I was certainly skeptical, but had nothing to lose by giving it a try. Liz “talked” to Tahoe, and he expressed to her that there were only a couple of the places that we had visited that he actually liked going to. He also told Liz about another personal matter that was worrying him, and we can’t thank her enough for that information changing both of our lives and making us both much happier. I don’t know how to explain it, or to thank Liz enough, but I think her love and caring for animals, and their owners who love them and are concerned about them, gives her the special gift she has.
