“I filed for separation from my husband a few months after Nutmeg died.
I realized that both Nutmeg and Diego were my guardian angels.
Throughout the stress of divorce and daily life, my dogs have been a grounding force.
They’ve been angelic.
They have wisdom.
Having dogs has centered my focus.
No matter what I am going through, I always have a reason to get up, walk, and feed Diego.
I always have a grounding responsibility that is a privilege.”
