Welcome to our family!
Here is a picture of Nicholas’s make a wish- service dog Shane (on the left). Can’t believe he is 10. From time to time he works as a therapy dog at the local hospital. He is moving slower than his younger year. We are graced by another service dog (now retired). His name is Sebastian who also worked a few years detecting seizures and being a companion for a handicap child. Sebastian is so sweet and may become a therapy dog- he still wants to work. We know at our house- for some crazy reason- animals bring joy. Here is an oldie but goodie of Nicholas sledding at age 5! I miss him every day! Happy Winter to you and your families!
