More Life With a Dog

Reading the recent article posted here, On Life With a Dog, by Jane Brody, made me want to share my own story with the Village.

I am doing something about loneliness and widowhood as well. I have rescued a 3 year-old (best guess) Shih Tzu urchin named Abby. We are on our learning curve now. Both of us are changing our ways a bit. I am enjoying every minute of it. It is affirming to walk a dog and stop and greet and just plain have fun.

Maybe there are others in the Village who would like to join us on walks? Abby has already been around Greenlake and on a friendly visit, too.
