I am the author of "MAGGIE the Dog Who Changed My Life" and "FINAL YEARS Stories of Parent Care, Loss and Lives Changed." My hope is to increase awareness of animal intelligence, emotions, & the special relationship between humans & animals. Covers pet loss, puppy mill awareness, pet health, animal rescue, the spiritual bond between animals & humans, & their sixth sense way of reading us. Born out of my special bond with my black lab, Maggie.

Dogs in the Courthouse: Compassion for All
Dogs are being trained by Canine Companions for Independence to calm and support juveniles and adults in the courtroom. They also sooth victims who are struggling with abuse issues, child crime and domestic abuse victims. They help children relax enough to tell what happened to them, to get to the truth. The dog's presence can dissipate tension for all.
