Making a difference



She came prancing right up to us, a pink bow placed perfectly behind each ear, and my kids couldn’t have been more delighted!

She was the prettiest dog I’ve ever seen––small, fair, silky long hair. She swept across the floor of the store with what appeared to be great dignity and purpose.

“Reach down and pet her,” her owner invited, holding the dog’s pink leash in his hand. “I had her registered as a service dog. Now she goes around making people happy. That’s her job.”

My kids reached down to stroke the silky, soft hair.

“What’s her name?” I asked the friendly owner.

“Precious Jewel––PJ for short.”

“That’s the perfect name for her,” I replied with a smile.

It was a fun moment for my kids, and I enjoyed seeing their smiles and hearing their giggles.

As the dog and her owner walked away, I felt grateful for the many people (and dogs) in our world that do what they can to make this world a better place.
