Hi My name is Jack. I am Kate's 90 pound collie poodle afghan and I am a Pet Therapist. Today we are on the road again! I love riding in the car and often wherever Kate goes, I go! Sometimes she takes me to the nursing and retirement homes and we visit people.
I remember one guy, he was pretty young (about 7 in dog years). He was very disabled and didn't "connect" with anyone, ever! Kate took me in and his eyes slowly raised to meet mine and his hand reached out and ruffled the hair on my head. You could tell he was really weak and tired. They say it was the only time he made eye contact or reached out for anything. It was with ME?!
I heard he died the next day. I am so glad I was there with him.
