This picture is the very first picture I took of Major and Stella. I feel so bad, as I thought their anniversary was on 10/5, but we actually had Major placed with us on 9/25/11. It is so hard to believe that this amazing creature has been with us for 2 years. So, to the most amazing DAD team I know, Happy Anniversary!

A little faith. A little hope. A little trust. Some compassion. A warm place to rest their head. Some love. Some respect. And a purpose. This little worthless good for nothing dog has gone on to save my daughter’s life several times. And he has saved mine too. And all he asks for in return is love.

  1. I absolutely love these pictures. And I don’t like that she’s in the hospital but I like that Major is in the hospital with her. I think dogs are such a tremendous healing force emotionally that eventually, the physical will catch up! All my love to your family!

  2. Love this whole post! Major is such an amazing example of how the right people can turn a dog around for the best. Congrats on your 2 years with him, you are blessed to have each other! It’s a win-win situation! 🙂

  3. Congratulations on the 2nd anniversary of Major being part of your diabetes team. I am so pleased to see dogs helping to alert on the highs & lows with diabetes. You are blessed to have have such wonderful dogs as part of your team approach.
