1997 - 2009

My beautiful Summer was my guardian angel. No matter where I put myself, she was there at my feet, keeping watch over me. Some of the most special moments I spent with Summer were her Therapy Dog visits with the children at Merrymount Children's Centre. For almost six years, she helped me teach the children about treating animals with kindness, compassion and respect. They learned to pet my dog with soft and gentle hands and they learned how to read her body language. She was so amazingly tolerant and sweet with the children. My girl brought such joy to so many. It was a well-lived life for a much loved dog.
