With a golden stuffed puppy dog next to the pillow on her hospital bed this young woman defined courage as she defied the odds. She hadn’t lost hope of keeping her foot, as she said, “It is just a foot. It’s not a big deal. Others have lost much more. At least I know I can walk again.” As she uttered those words, I was reminded of a thousand dollar pair of shoes I had just seen in the window of a very expensive designer shoe store in Houston.
Our PTSD Support Dogs seem to have a sensitivity and an intuitive ability to sense if their patients are happy, sad, want to play, or simply be left alone. With them the warriors are able to reveal themselves in complete honesty. The dog provides a mirror back to them, whatever the mood or the circumstance, they have the ability to be more keenly aware than we will ever understand.
