She is always there to comfort me when I am troubled. She speaks not a word and yet somehow, with a wag of her tail and a gentle lick of my hand, she calms my worries. She never fails to remind and assure me I am not alone. It's times like this I realize how much I am needed and loved. She is a blessing in my life, a gift from God and I treasure every moment of every day we are together. She is my dog and I love her.
