Dog saves the day
Friday, June 18, 2021
I went to see my wife today but this time I was allowed to bring our dog Leah. My wife has been non communicative for a while now as she has difficulty putting thoughts into words.
We met outside in a small picnic area with few people around. After the dog nudged her a few times, my wife started talking to the dog the same way she did before dementia set in. I was stunned
but happy to see the interaction. It may have only lasted about 30 minutes but for sure the do
g will go with me now as long as we can meet outside.
I am still wondering how a dog could break through to my wife when it seems no one else could. I am still walking on air and Leah got some extra treats though I know this breakthrough won't last. I needed a positive day and today I got it.
