My Dog, My Hero
There goes my hero - watch him as he goes ...
Our dogs are all heroes – for many reasons and in so many ways. Some are so brave they scare away monsters; others so aware they protect us from shadows & dust bunnies. Some bring out the best in us while others forgive the worst; many teach us lessons of recovery and survival. They love unconditionally & without judgement, filling the hearts of some people who thought they might never be loved.
I remember a therapy dog – “Chivas” – another kind of hero. This shiny majestic Golden Retriever regularly visited a convalescent home, proudly attired in his jester’s hat or his Superman cape, and always headed straight over to his favorite old gent, a stoke victim who spoke only one word - “Chivas”.
Tell us about your hero – it doesn’t have to be a sensational story – just a short one, even just a sentence or two. Maybe your hero made you laugh one day when you were sad. Maybe she fetched your paper during a storm. Maybe he’s a service dog, or miraculously barked and woke you when your house was on fire – or found an abandoned kitten. Or maybe he ate that broccoli you hated as a child.
