Dog is My Shepherd came to me one day when I was thinking about how much having a dog has changed my life. My pup comes to work with me everyday and has since she was 2 months old. I can read her facial expressions and her body language. I know when she is watching someone she doesn’t trust. When she suddenly stops and doesn’t want to go into the park that day, I listen to her and we turn around. When she meets someone for the first time and absolutely loves them, so do I. From her, I learned to enjoy the simple things. A walk through the park is full of wonderful smells and critters. Every meal is cause for celebration. A day at the beach is the best way to spend a day, ever. I came to realize she is not just my companion or my co-pilot, she is my guide…my shepherd.
