Typed for Farrah by Barbara Tanner;
My name is Farrah, a loyal German Shepherd to my owner, Barbara. I would like to tell you a story about one of my heros that I met on a recent visit.
It was a windy day in January and several of my four legged friends and I had arrived at our pet therapy visit. We walked into the room with several patients sitting around. I went over in the corner and laid down. (my usual position on this visit)
A young man who had been in the military came over; sat down beside me and said he was at the facility for Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. He laid his palm on my side and told me stories about all his friends and their K-9’s that had given their lives defending freedom.
I could see the sadness in his eyes as he continued to talk about his buddies and the friendships they shared. I wanted to stay with him for the rest of the evening but it was getting close to the time for me to say goodbye.
He thanked me for listening and in some small way I hope I had eased some of his pain that evening. This young man is truly a hero!
There are many, many stories that I could tell about you about how much Paws 2 Care has enabled me and my owner to bring happiness and joy to so many people, and how a smile, a paw shake and sometimes a wet kiss will brighten up the face of even the saddest person!
Thank you so much for reading my story!
