Since the murder of my daughter Tina, depression has been a real struggle for me. Even though it's been over 5 years I still have my bad days. The pain never seems to go away. I pray for strength daily and God does answer my prayers. But I believe He wants me to learn from my pain. Those of us who have lost a child, know it can be
an uphill battle that never seems to end. You feel as if your heart has been ripped
out from inside of you. It hurts pretty bad and it is hard even to describe.
The puppy on this page is Bandit, a Shih Tzu and my little bundle of joy. I have been sharing him with most of you since he joined our family in February. You have seen him grow over the past few months and I just have to share him with you, because
the love and comfort he has brought me has helped me and my husband smile
again and from the messages I recieve, he is bringing you some smiles too.
It's not at all surprising that more and more healthcare professionals are recommending that their patients adopt a dog or cat to help them through difficult periods of physical and mental illness. I have read of many instances that
