“I have found that my dogs play a similar role in my life.

For me, what’s most joyous is accepting responsibility for them.

They give me the chance to give them the care and love they innately deserve.

That means consistency and being a presence in their life on a daily basis.

They give me the chance to be a better person.”

“I went on a waiting list.

I was lucky because someone backed out and I got Barcley.

Since having Barcley, I went through a job change.

I went from having a structured schedule to a more flexible one.

Barcley has been a great distraction.

He gets me out into the neighborhood and helps me connect with people I would never have met before when I had a rigid work schedule.”
