Man’s Best Friend…

 

According to survey’s conducted, over 30% of households around the world own at least one dog. They are heroes, they’re our family, they are loyal. they are unconditional love. Every child and adult who has ever owned a dog knows that a dog’s middle name is “Forgivness”. It doesn’t matter what mood we’re in, how long we leave them alone or how often we play with them, every time our dogs see us they wag their tails and are ecstactically happy! I think this prayer says it all…

 

“Please God, make me the kind of person my dog thinks I am, Amen.”

Whether it’s a much loved family pet or a stranger’s dog who helps lift the spirits with just a friendly glance or wag of the tail, every dog has the ability to touch a human life. At the most basic level, a dogs heroic nature stems from acting upon deeply innate instincts. Regardless of their backgrounds, and whether they’re purebred or made up of more breeds than you can count on the fingers of one paw, man’s best friend will go above and beyond the call of duty to help the people he loves—as well as those he’s never met before—in some very surprising ways. Besides being family pets that help teach our children so many life lessons, they are used to help heal PTSD, visit in nursing homes, rescue lost individuals and to pursue many other outstanding careers.

 

Although our dogs are not part of the sessions here on the farm, we invite children and adults both to engage with them for a happy snuggle or a lick on the face. And especially for those who don’t have a dog of their own, there is a special healing that can be shared with three rambunctious Jack Russells.

 

Each dog here on the farm has its own story to tell. We invite you to meet the dogs.
