A Great Day at Westport Dog Festival
My most heartwarming moment came at the end of the day when most folks had left the festival. A father brought his two young sons to the Pet Partners booth. The boys were probably 4 and 6 years old and very afraid of dogs. The father patiently talked to the boys and engaged therapy animal handler Angela in conversation about her dog, Teddy, a cavalier King Charles spaniel. Angela is a teacher and she knew just how to engage and assuage the children's fears.
Roslyn & Abbey: 2021 National Walk Champions
Time after time, I watch this amazing dog do her job. She naturally senses what people need and effortlessly provides it. From infants to children to adults to individuals in their advanced years with memory deficits; from critically ill patients to those ready to go home; from hospital staff to first responders, Abbey effortlessly provides what they need. Watching her work frequently gives me the chills and always makes my heart burst with incredible pride.
