  2. Pets bring so very much to people, don't they? And how lucky that people in need have people dedicated to raising and training pets for them. I'm so glad.

  4. I think many people in our society could benefit from service dogs. And from hugs. And from hugs from dogs. :-)

  7. A hugger is such a great job for that dog. I think that photo is so wonderful. I can see why you wanted to capture it.

  8. Hugs are so important and I would think for someone who is not well, a hugging dog is priceless.

  9. Wow, that is great. Where Logan used to ride horses, a man used to bring two service dogs for the clients and their parents to enjoy. They were very calming, when I would hold one and pet it, he just melted into me.
