My Dog is My Hero Because…
Multiple Sclerosis is my demon. Annie, my 18 month friend is my motivation to stay strong so that I can walk her, train her, play with her. She rests her head in my hands when they are hurting so bad I can’t move them. She is happy just lying down beside me when I am tired. Annie’s eyes talk to me: “Don’t give up, keep going.” And I do, so I can go places and do things with her. Annie and I are not attached by a leash, but by our hearts!
