He has no more aggression problems, he excels in obedience, agility, and freestyle dancing. He has a tremendous zest for life and people!
Jack has taught me to conquer my fears, get over it, and the world is yours!

Lauralie: The Diva 10 Year Old Golden Retriever
Lauralie spent her first 5 years in a breeders kennel. Socialized with only one other dog. She had a hard time at first meeting new dogs, but she has no issues now at all, in fact she raised and mentored Jack!
Diva has taught me to love freely, even if love is not returned, do not miss the chance to express it.
In Loving Memory: November 21, 1998 – November 20, 2008 An angel of Golden threads walked this earth with me. Her wings laid quietly by her side. Her love touched many hearts and souls. Our time was short but the love we shared will never wither Her wings opened and she was gone forever She will be forever in my heart, body, and soul. My Diva.
Butchie: The Carpet 11 Year Old Chow-Chow
Spent his first 6 months as a boarder in our clinic, socialized everyday with clients, other dogs, and cats. The owner finally let me take him home for good! Best therapy chow around!
Butchie has taught me to be silent, observe, and listen, the true essence of leadership.
In Loving Memory May 22, 1996-August 24, 2007 Before, I went to bed last night, I knew in my heart it would be the last time that Butchie would watch over me. His honor and love for me was incredible, a deep emotional silent bond. He came into the bedroom and positioned himself by the door for the last time. He died in my arms on the grass, as the sun rose, a last gift of love he has given me. He is now at peace with all his friends, and will wait for me to join him again. He will forever walk at my side, even though his physical presence is gone. He is running free now, with all my love with him.
